Educate a child in Pakistan
The Citizens Foundation’s award-wining schools serve Pakistan’s poorest.
The Skoll Award-winning Citizens Foundation has one goal: to offer a high-quality education to Pakistan’s children, regardless of ability to pay. They’ve earned an A+ for their work, with a four-star rating on Charity Navigator and recognition as a Clinton Global Initiative.
The Citizens Foundation has built more than 1,500 schools where they are needed most—in urban slums and rural communities. In the process, they have become the country’s largest private employer of women, who work as teachers, principals, and support staff. Behind the statistics—they’ve educated 266,000 students to date—are individual success stories. Stories like that of Zainab, 15, whose widowed mother was determined to send her bright daughter to school. When Zainab goes to college, where she plans to study computer science, she’ll be the first person in her family to get a college education.
