Project Milestones

Our mission is to introduce the Educate a Child Program so that we can help support the ongoing needs of students for their entire schooling. This will allow families to send their children into TCF schools worry free rather than wondering if there will still be an opportunity from one year to the next.  We strongly believe that quality education is the only way to provide a better future for the people of Pakistan.

As of 2013 TCF has:

 910 schools in 67 towns and cities

126,00 enrolled students

6,300 teachers with over 9,000 employees


The TCF Austin chapter wants to continue to increase our efforts for this powerful organization.

In 2014, we hope to:


-educate as many children as possible through our Educate a Child Initiative

-help TCF's efforts in the adoption of and running of campuses on a yearly basis

-help TCF's efforts in gathering running cost for existing schools

-raise awareness for TCF in our local community


The Citizens Foundation is one of Pakistan's largest non-profit organizations committed to education and is recognized by the Clinton Global Initiative. With 5 schools in Karachi in 1995 and the vision of a few concerned private citizens, TCF now runs 910 schools with 126,000 students nationwide

The vision of TCF is to remove barriers of class and privilege and to make the citizens of Pakistan Agents of Positive Change. We believe that access to basic education is the right of each individual and not a privilege. Apart from following the regular curriculum, we focus on the character building of students to equip them with high moral values and confidence. Each of our schools must enroll 50% girls and have 100% female faculty

A result of all of this incredible work, TCF has been named the winner of the 2013 Skoll Award for Social Entreprenuership.
