Elephant Thoughts

Elephant Thoughts enables teachers to create change, both in Canada and abroad. We are a registered Canadian charity, founded in 2002 by a group of teachers, principals and other professional educators.

We are many things: a new form of charity built on principles of self-reliance and self-sustenance, a source of educational programs in the classroom and beyond, and a force for sustainable change in education both in Canada’s First Nations and in the developing world.

First and foremost, we are teachers. Everything we do is done in a spirit of education, with the intention of creating sustainable change. We are determined to bring positive impact to the lives of students everywhere. If you’re a teacher and you’d like to get involved, let us know.

As a teacher-run organization, we mandate that 75% of our voting membership consist of teachers, either active or retired. This helps us leverage the expertise of hundreds of teachers and education professionals to create some of the most effective and innovative educational programs offered in any school, anywhere.

We also have a store featuring educational toys hand selected by teachers. If you’re a teacher, you get an automatic 15% discount!

Elephant Thoughts currently works with schools in Ontario, in more than 70 First Nations and Inuit Communities across Canada, and in Nicaragua, Tanzania, Nepal, and India.
