What is TCF

Our Mission
TCF’s mission in Pakistan is simple, to help provide:

Quality education to all children in Pakistan
Facilitate a better future and open new opportunities to children from deprived areas

TCF are passionate about a number of values:

Gender equality and education for all, without discrimination
Removing barriers to positive social change in Pakistan
Providing children a balanced, holistic and relevant education which is modern yet fully respects local values, customs and cultural norms


All TCF Schools have a pay-as-you-can-afford system, where families are encouraged to make a nominal contribution towards the fee based on their means – often as little as £0.0653. The shortfall is funded by generous donors.

Schools Under Construction
To date, TCF-UK donors have built 42 schools across Pakistan of which 18 now have afternoon shifts and supported 60 school units in 2015.

Success Stories
TCF Graduate Back to TCF as a Teacher
Shumaila has come back to TCF as a teacher. For the past three years she has been teaching in a TCF Primary School – Fazal Illahi Campus at Sumar Goth, Karachi. “TCF gave me the confidence with which I face the world today. When we were students at TCF, our teachers gave us so much – they were our inspiration. Now that I am a teacher myself, it is my duty to give back to the children of my community. After all, these children look up to us to guide them and teach them. We owe it to the future of Pakistan to develop these children into responsible adults ” asserts Shumaila.
