Aagahi illuminates lives!
[vc_column_text class=”text-left”]Aagahi, TCF’s adult literacy programme was launched in 2005 as a community development initiative. It provides illiterate women from rural areas and urban slums around TCF Schools a chance to learn how to read and write.

The classes are held twice a year from January to April and September to December. As a part of  this programme, basic mathematics, Urdu reading and writing is taught to the learners over a period of four months. The literacy module comprises of four workbooks, three to teach phonetics based recognition of sounds and one to teach basic numeracy.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner animation=”” width=”1/2″]

Basic functional literacy skills have an enormous impact on community women. From being able to read bus numbers at a busy bus stop, to calculating the change they are owed at the end of a shopping transaction, to writing a letter to their loved ones, the gift of literacy dramatically transforms their lives.

Clean water for
healthier communities

[vc_column_text class=”text-left”]Water is essential to human survival. Over 41,000 children in Pakistan die from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation every year.

Since 2015, TCF with its partners, is installing water filtration plants for healthier communities around TCF Schools. It opens community-scale filtered water depots in its school premises with dual outlets. One outlet provides clean water to the children attending school while the other is used by community people to have access to drinking water throughout the day.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding=”xs-padding”][vc_column animation=”” width=”1/1″][vc_column_text class=”text-left”]The objective is to ensure good health and economic benefits to the communities we work in and reduce absenteeism among the school children by providing them with safe drinking water.
