A crisis no less urgent than a pandemic!
There exists an alarming gap in opportunity fueled by the inequity in access to quality education in Pakistan. Derelict infrastructure, unqualified or unavailable teachers and outdated curricula in Pakistan’s public schools stand in sharp contrast against the potential of a whopping 22.8 million kids between the age of 5-16 out of school in Pakistan according to UNICEF’s statistics. This places Pakistan with the world’s second highest number of out-of-school children with 3 out of 7 kids without hope of gaining a quality education, constituting a crisis no less urgent and alarming than a pandemic.
The Citizens Foundation is raising funds to mitigate this education crisis. All funds collected are utilized in the operational costs of running 1,652 schools (and growing) educating over 266,000 children from less privileged backgrounds.
The Citizens Foundation is creating real impact at scale
The Citizens Foundation is a non-profit organization creating impact at scale by running purpose-built schools in the heart of urban slums and rural communities in Pakistan to correct inequities through an all-female faculty and a 50:50 gender ratio amongst students. Moreover, its education programs focus on providing customized textbooks for better learning outcomes and training teachers to promote inquiry and critical thinking amongst students in class. TCF’s agenda is to drive positive change in Pakistan by removing the barriers of class, privilege and gender when it comes to access to quality education.
The Citizens Foundation maintains the highest standards of financial integrity through annual audits by the country’s largest audit firm. Donations qualify for Zakat and Sadaqah. The organization welcomes potential and current donors to reach out to TCF for facilitated trips to TCF schools in Pakistan.
