About The Citizens Foundation
The Citizens Foundation (TCF) is a non-profit organization aiming to bring about positive social change through education for the less privileged. This is done by removing barriers of class, privilege, and gender. 25 years in, the organization has now set up 1652 schools catering to 255,000 students.
The TCF model works by running purpose-built schools in urban slums and rural communities in Pakistan with a focus on empowering these communities through involving all of its members. And so, an all-female faculty has been set up with a 50:50 student gender ratio. Additionally, TCF education programs and resources have been customized, along with training teachers, to promote critical thinking amongst students for better learning outcomes.

About the campaign
The aim of the Educate Today, Empower Generations campaign is to raise funds this Ramadan to help cover the operating costs of these schools and the education of these children. AED 500 can cover all costs associated with teaching, school books, and learning resources for an underpriviliged child in Pakistan.
Additionally, TCF is trying to alleviate the pressure being felt due to the pandemic crisis by the communities our students, staff, and alumni reside in. Set up in 800 locations across the country, TCF is able to allocate resources to various families in need. 20% of all funds will be directed to help support these people through the TCF COVID Relief Fund.
