why we exist 

Pakistan’s education system denies our children the opportunities they deserve 


of our children aged 5-16 are out of school

of those enrolled

attend struggling public or private schools



of all fifth graders

cannot read a story or do two-digit division


The scale of the problem is so huge and the causes so complex that no single organization or individual alone can address them.


Teach For Pakistan leverages promising young talent to create a multiplier effect on the education system.

We find people with leadership potential and prepare them to build an education movement - starting with students, schools and communities, and growing to engage people and institutions across the social and economic systems.
