Implementing Partner

The Citizens Foundation (TCF)

The Citizens Foundation (TCF) in Pakistan believes that access to basic education is the right of each individual and not a privilege. The EAC-TCF partnership works to help guarantee this right, by providing quality education to children who live in rural and urban slums of Pakistan.

The Citizens Foundation (TCF)

TCF’s vision is to remove barriers of class and privilege, with the mission to make the citizens of Pakistan agents of positive change. Since its inception in 1996, TCF has evolved into the largest education non-profit in Pakistan, and is one of the country’s leading organizations in the field of formal education.

TCF has invested in and operates 910 school units across remote rural areas and densely populated urban slums in 97 towns and cities.  It provides quality formal education to 126,000 children from low-income families, marginalized communities, and conflict-ridden areas.

EAC and TCF are working to enroll over 82,700 children who have never been to school in TCF schools across Pakistan over a 4 year period. The partnership is providing these children with an education that they may not have otherwise had.
