Our Objective:

Tours of Purpose (TOP) is a teacher exchange program for teachers in elementary schools, high schools and for professors in universities world-wide. TOP strives to provide this unique service to all participating educators at the lowest cost to them and or their sending institutions. The driving force behind these TOP is the keen realization that our world will function better tomorrow if no student is deprived sound academic opportunities, and that fine education makes a difference one's life.
