Please tell us and everyone else about your organisation and its mission

The Citizens Foundation UK raises funds for The Citizens Foundation (TCF), Pakistan's leading education charity. TCF is a non-profit organisation set up in 1995 by a group of citizens who wanted to bring about positive social change through education.

The TCF model focuses on providing quality education through purpose-built schools located in the heart of Pakistan’s urban slums and rural communities. To magnify its impact, improve enrolment and quality of education, TCF is also adopting failing Government schools across Pakistan.

In the 25 years since its inception, the Foundation has become the largest private employer of women in Pakistan, with an all-female faculty of 12,500 teachers and principals.

The Economist has recognised TCF as "perhaps the largest network of independently run schools in the world", with 1,652 school units in over 700 sites countrywide. With over 266,000 students (48% of whom are girls), TCF aims to create opportunities to improve quality of life for our students and their wider communities.

Our mission is to educate children and to educate them well, which is why 90% of our students go on to pursue higher education.
