Mission Statement

TFT began in 1990 when an English teacher from Pennsylvania travelled to Romania as part of an international adoption agency team. She was invited by the the Romanian state of Hunedoara to return to Romania to teach English to area children. Returning alone, her first summer classes were held at Paclisa, a neuropsychiatric children's hospital in rural Transylvania.

Since then TFT has expanded to a team of several teacher volunteers visiting two countries, Romania and India with disciplines covering English, history, science, math, elementary education, and library science.
