About The Citizens Foundation (UK)

The Citizens Foundation (UK) is the UK fundraising chapter for TCF raising awareness and funds to build and support primary and secondary schools to serve some of Pakistan’s most neglected communities. To date, UK donors have built over 43 schools, including 18 that run afternoon shifts. All TCF Schools have a pay-as-you-can-afford system where families make a nominal contribution towards the fee based on their means. The vast majority of funding comes from generous donations from individuals, corporates, matched giving schemes, Trusts and Foundations and through TCF-UK events.
