The idea for the Teacher for Russia program originated with two graduates from Saint Petersburg State University, Alena Makovich and Elena Yarmanova after they came across Teach for All, a major international network of nongovernmental social enterprises.

7 November marked the centennial of the October Revolution—an event that, whatever you think of it, has done much to define the entire twentieth century.
