Everyone who is here but especially the class of 1992; The people who made this project possible; Our spouses; Multitudes of people contributing in their own manner; And Sadaf Khan for asking us to present the project.
1. What was the need and why? 2. How was a solution planned? 3. Who was involved with the implementation? 4. How was the project financed? 5. Is there a measurable impact? 6. Future directions
Tenth Year of Graduation Eternal frustration regarding lack of substantial impact in Pakistan
This was one of the two difficult aspects of this project. First question asked was, should anything be done collectively at all? Second, what should be done? Thirdly, how should it be done? Fourth, where should it be done?
Everyone who was on the class email was invited to participate from the beginning to date; There is NOTHING as Universal Consensus; and there is ABUNDANCE of doubt! A group of logical participants emerged, who worked with the available information, in the most reasonable manner; some in Pakistan and some in United States.
An estimate was generated once the project was identified; Fund raising feasibility assessed; It is completely financed by the members of the graduating class; A committed group has stepped up; some known and some pleasant surprises;
The Citizens Foundation has established 830 school units in 93 town and cities in 54 districts across Pakistan providing quality education to 115,000 children (approximately 50% girls) with an all female faculty of 5,800 teachers -providing employment to 8,800 people nationwide. All TCF Schools have a pay-as-you-can-afford system, where families are encouraged to make a nominal contribution towards the fees based on their means– often as little as Rs. 10 (US$ 0.12) per month to encourage pride in education. All teachers and principals undergo training twice a year, before the start of the school and during the summer vacations to enhance their knowledge and equip them with the latest teaching skills. 4,000 students, successful alumni of the TCF Schooling system 9,100 adults became literate at the end of 2011 through the Agahi Program Admin Costs were 9.2% for 2011
It is located in Taiser Town, Karachi. The school has witnessed a tremendous response from the community, taking up the student strength to 124. Current Academic Year started in April 2012 and admissions are being accepted for the entry level classes of Class VI and Class VII. The campus also employs 11 members of the local community, including 6 faculty members and 5 administrative staff members.
