The Citizens Foundation – A Case Of Social Entrepreneurship

Aisha Kamran Siddiqui

Abstract


The Citizens Foundation (TCF) was established by a group of social entrepreneurs with a vision to remove barriers of class and privilege through provision of quality education to the poorest children of Pakistan, especially girls. TCF was started in 1996 with only 5 schools in the slum areas of Karachi, and has now evolved into one of the largest network of privately owned formal low cost schools for underprivileged communities in the world. TCF currently operates 1,000 purpose built school units with 145,000 students in slums and villages across 100 towns and cities of Pakistan. More than 10,000 people are provided employment across Pakistan, with 7,700 female teachers earning livelihoods from TCF schools. The non-profit is operated on the highest standards of professional excellence, registered in Pakistan and audited by leading chartered accountants firms. TCF has been recognized regionally and internationally for the high caliber of work.
