THE STORY:

The Citizens Foundation USA wrote -

In 1994 a group of friends were at a party, the discussion that evening revolved around Pakistan’s myriad problems, including an education emergency because the establishment had treated education as a privilege rather than a basic right of every child. These friends, ordinary citizens, decided to form The Citizens Foundation (TCF) & embark on an ambitious journey to provide education to underprivileged children in Pakistan.

Today, TCF is providing formal low cost education to 145,000 children enrolled in 1000 School Units spread over 100 locations across Pakistan

It takes just $10 a month to provide a quality education to a child in a TCF school. 90.2% of every dollar donated to TCF goes directly to running the schools.

Do you know:  Pakistan has the highest number of out-of-school children in the world after Nigeria.35 % of Pakistan’s population is under 15 years of age.

TCF Model:

Purpose-built Schools: Each TCF School is purpose-built with spacious and well- lit classrooms, play areas, art room, science laboratories and washrooms.
Off-the-streets and into the Schools: TCF is focused on educating children in urban slums and rural areas.
Accessibility: TCF builds Schools in the heart of impoverished communities, so that children can easily walk to them.
Curriculum:  Using the national curriculum of Pakistan as a base, TCF focuses on augmenting the syllabus with contextual text books. These text books are developed by TCF and other leading educational publishers.
Pay-as-you-can-afford: TCF follows a pay-as-you-can-afford model and charges a minimal fee, as low as $ 0.10 per month.
Trained Faculty: All teachers receive pre-service training as well as annual in-service training..
