WE DID IT!!!
June 29, 2016
We’re helping the government educate Pakistan's children!
25 Million children in Pakistan are out of school, of which 55% are girls. Pakistan has the 2nd highest out of school population in the world. Our schools reach 175,000 children, but, we want to do more.
The Citizens Foundation, USA supports the building of civil society in Pakistan and promotes gender equality by providing quality scientific and balanced education for underprivileged children.
To alleviate the systemic lack of education for millions of Pakistanis, TCF has undertaken a public-private partnership with Pakistan’s provincial governments to manage their schools. The pilot project involves supporting 89 government schools in Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh. If successful in reaching our fundraising goal, we can dramatically change the quality of education for the children in these schools. Help us make sure that every child gets the education they deserve.
Government Schools – How We’re Going to Help
Millions of Pakistani children are languishing in dysfunctional government schools, wasting their potential. Less than 50% of Grade 5 students in Government schools can read Urdu and solve Arithmetic problems at the Grade 2 level. Many Government schools lack proper toilet facilities, discouraging the enrolment of schools. Together with you TCF can help transform the future of these children, their families and their communities.
TCF is the largest non-profit providers of education in Pakistan, with over 1,200 schools reaching 175,000 children in urban slums and poor rural areas. TCF has a model for affordable, quality education that works to eliminate the barriers of class and privilege
TCF will introduce its management systems and processes, curriculum enrichment, teacher training, and monitoring and evaluation in order to help improve the quality of education and enrolment of out-of-school children in government schools. This is where were need your help. We need the funds to support these schools and grow them into the nurturing learning environments for these underprivileged children.
