      Pros

      You get to work with children and pass on your learnings to the next generation.

      Cons

      It is easy to get swept away by the cause and the intensity of some of the children that you may interact with. It is important to maintain a healthy work life balance on the job,

      Pros

      Spending time with the kids, feeling like you're making a difference. Most people are absolutely amazing and helpful. You can build overall personality, people skills and confidence here owing to the nature of work. Work life balance is ok as long as you prioritise well and manage your time.

      Cons

      TFI has been doing some great marketing which is a draw for young students and professionals. However, there is zero professional development at TFI in terms of technical skills. Post fellowship opportunities are difficult to find, if not impossible, if you;re trying to shift into a non-social work field. Salary is extremely low and financial independence is hard to come by. There is no support provided by TFI for housing, transport or anything else, even in the initial 2-3 weeks.
