Amarok Society- Teach Mothers to Teach the World

Dr. Tanyss Munro has devoted her life, with her husband Gem, to improving educational opportunities
for disadvantaged people across Canada and abroad.
Through her work as an educator with remote Indigenous communities, senior advisor to federal
Ministers and Regional Indigenous political organizations, she’s had the privilege of getting to really
know life in communities ranging from Arctic hamlets to troubled reserves to Parliament Hill.
For the past 15 years, Tanyss has worked and continues to work with governments, universities and
marginalized populations around the world through intra-governmental organizations and most recently
through consulting.
In response to recognizing that new ways were needed to provide education to the poorest children on
earth, Tanyss and Gem founded Amarok Society in 2006 in the slums of Bangladesh and Pakistan.
For their work, they were recipients of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medals.
