Help us educate children in schools in Pakistan which emphasize gender equality and alleviate the marginalization of women and the financially underprivileged.
TCF is a 4/4 rated charity with less than 7% administrative costs.
TCF’s mission is to “support the building of civil society in Pakistan by providing quality education to underprivileged children, promoting gender equality and advocating for reform of public education. [They] believe that education is a basic human right, a pre-requisite for democratic institutions to flourish in Pakistan and for its people to compete in a global economy.
TCF currently has 1,060 schools in all four provinces of Pakistan with 165,000 children enrolled - nearly half of them girls. [They] are present in 109 towns and cities. TCF has also trained and employed 8,900 women as teachers and principals.”
(These numbers are old, it’s now 1,441 schools with 204,000 students!)

I believe investing in education has countless implications for societal change in gender/racial equality, income disparity, civic engagement, and health. Investing in the education of girls and having an all female faculty not only empowers women and challenges the paradigm of a woman’s role being primarily in the home, but also allows us to access brains which may contain innovative solutions to some of the worlds toughest problems. I would greatly appreciate if you could help celebrate my birthday by making a positive impact with your generous contribution! Thank you!!
