This message relates to recent news reports regarding The Citizens Foundation’s (TCF) participation in an initiative by non-profit organisations to raise funds and help address Pakistan’s balance of payments situation. While TCF has enormous respect for all the individuals and organisations reportedly involved in this initiative, we would like to clarify that we are not affiliated with this fundraising campaign.
As a not-for-profit organisation registered under Section 42 of the Companies Ordinance, TCF’s primary mandate is to provide quality education to children in less privileged areas across Pakistan. Leveraging the capabilities developed by the organisation over time, we have also tried to help our communities through a host of community development programmes in addition to providing relief in response to crises and natural disasters. Across all our work, we strive to honour our commitments to donors and stakeholders by directly executing programmes and delivering impact on the ground.
In order to comply with regulations, stay true to the organisation’s constitutional objectives and deliver on the promise we have made to our communities, TCF feels compelled to remain focused on our core mission and mandate.
