impact on students 

Our vision is for our children to grow into scholars, thinkers, artists, scientists, and entrepreneurs – builders of a new Pakistan and world order. To achieve this, Fellows teach to develop students’ emotional and intellectual capacity, as well as their ability to act on their learning, solving real world challenges.

 Emotional Development

Civic Engagement

Mariam Asaad and Fiza Miraj (2014 Alumnus) empowered their students with problem-solving and leadership skills by arranging workshops at their school. The workshops required students to identify issues in their school community and design & execute appropriate interventions. 

One group of students staged their project in front of 800 students and teachers, where they independently organized and executed a skit. For a group of children, none of whom had ever attended a theatrical production, to write and direct script a play on their own was a powerful testament to their capabilities.

Teach For Pakistan Fellows are not only well-trained and qualified but are also really committed and dedicated to the work they do. The work they have done during school closures is remarkable. They made sure their students' learning doesn't stop. They made WhatsApp groups to stay in touch with their students and put in every effort to reach all of their students.

Teach For Pakistan's impact on students, teachers, and the community is unprecedented. The amount of dedicated effort that these Fellows put in their students has never been seen before. While parents previously only used to show up to school on necessary parent-teacher meetings, now they are actively involved in the school and their children's learning as Fellows constantly find new touchpoints with them. The community impact  For Pakistan is exemplary

In Year 2, Fellows implement community projects to tackle a specific factor affecting children’s well-being in their school or community, and create structures that can be sustained by local stakeholders. 47 such initiatives have been undertaken in Karachi and Lahore communities.


Having seen the direct impact of literacy on academics, Fellows have worked to develop student and parent literacy though workshops, establishing libraries, and holding sessions.




Realizing the interrelationship of health and education, Fellows have initiated projects to inculcate sports & sports education into the daily lives of the students.



Fellows’ projects under this domain have included training teachers, creating systems for classroom management & discipline and initiatives to eliminate corporal punishment.


Noticing that low-income communities often lack access to and knowledge of learning spaces and/or career paths, Fellows have assisted and encouraged their students to create community learning spaces, and have imparted crucial skills through awareness sessions for both students and parents.

“The CDP (Community Development Project) has been the best part of this Fellowship. I did not realize it at the beginning of the project, but I can very confidently say it now. Now that I have undertaken an entrepreneurial venture on my own, there is no stopping me. I know that I will only work with an organization with which my vision is aligned.”
