Please donate to The Citizens Foundations Covid-19 Relief Program this Ramadan. As you know TCF educates 266,000 students from the most impoverished areas in Pakistan. We are talking about children of day laborers, bricklayers, beggars, and peasants. Their education is the only ray of hope in their otherwise dark and depressing circumstances. The current Corona Virus lockdown has affected these children and their families in a very bad way and if we do not help them the effects on their communities will be devastating. TCF with the help of its teachers and alumni has identified 100,000 deserving people in 178 communities across Pakistan. Please donate generously and share this link with your friends. Help TCF provide relief to our brothers and sisters in the time of need.

CF has launched its COVID 19 Response Appeal and made sure relief is provided to the communities served by TCF along with the promise of uninterrupted education to their children. 20 percent of all donations received by TCF during this time will also be spent directly on relief efforts. Through this fund, we will ensure the following

• Provide targeted, mobile-enabled, cash transfers to families facing extreme economic hardship. Up to 100,000 distressed households have been identified through TCF teachers and alumni. These households are scattered across 178 locations across the length and breadth of Pakistan and are being provided 2,500 PKR in cash through Jazz cash. Where this facility is unavailable we are also providing rations. The rationale behind giving cash as primary means of aid is to make sure the recipients spend the money in their local shops and help drive the local economy.

• Support frontline healthcare professionals and volunteers with the equipment, testing kits, and protective gear which they urgently need.

• Ensure continuity of the learning process for millions of children who are currently forced to stay away from school. We are partnering with the Government and mass media to enable distance learning with digital access as well as exploring the possibility of producing and distributing physical study packs enabling self-study. Consequently, The Government of Pakistan has launched a national broadcast education TeleTaleem channel to mitigate the loss faced by the students. This channel is being aired across the country from 8 AM to 6 pm and TCF has been provided a regular weekly slot in this broadcast. We showcased our plans in this regard at a Global Skoll Foundation Online Session which dealt with how school systems across the world are responding to this challenge in low resource environments and here’s a recording of the

• While we are doing all of the above we want to make sure that the salaries of our school staff are being paid in full and in a timely manner considering all of our school staff belongs to the same lower socio-economic neighborhoods and serve as our anchors within those communities. Once the lockdown is over we want our children to come back to the same schools with their beautiful smiles and happy hearts.
