Commitment to Action

Enrolling 10,000 Out-of-School Children in Pakistan

Commitment by

The Citizens Foundation Of Pakistan

In 2011, The Citizens Foundation (TCF), one of the largest non-profit organizations in Pakistan dedicated to providing quality education to the underprivileged in rural and urban slums, committed to enrolling an additional 10,000 out-of-school children, including 5,000 girls. With this commitment, the Foundation will award 500 scholarships to girls in grades 11 and 12. Additionally, 4,000 mothers, elder sisters, and relatives of TCF students will receive literacy training. Core to the TCF model is an all-female teaching staff, so the expansion to reach 10,000 more children will result in 600 new jobs for women in teaching and administration.
