As it is a non-profit organization, and one of the largest privately owned networks of low-cost formal schools in Pakistan. The Foundation operates a network of 1,652 school units, educating 266,000 students through 12,000 teachers and principals, with over 17,400 employees. Approximately 94% of the Foundation's expenditure is allocated to the Education program.[1] In addition, TCF also conducts a literacy and numeracy skill development program in communities linked to its schools which has taught reading and writing to over 120,000 adults.

The students at TCF schools are charged a nominal fee, out of which up to 95% scholarship is awarded along with uniforms and books on a pay-as-you-can-afford basis. This is judged on the basis of the overall household income of each family, its circumstances and education related expenses. Applicants for financial assistance provide necessary details about their family income and resources by completing a scholarship form. TCF school staff, through visits to the applicants' homes, verify this information. School principals then send completed scholarship forms, along with their recommendations to the Regional Office where the final decision is taken.

BOLDEnthusiast response to COVID-19

As you all know we are going through unprecedented times. I want BOLDEnthusiasts to think of ideas on how we can help larger BOLDCommunity. I am proposing two ideas. Our biggest problem is that we cannot be on the ground but that is also an opportunity on how we can leverage technology to help others. 1. US focused (unless we build something similar in Pakistan or if there is already a service in Pakistan) a. Identify up to three households in your neighborhood with senior citizen above the age of 60. Establish communication with them and deliver grocery to them using instacart. AlphaBOLD will pay for service charges you pay to deliver grocery to them so they don't have to go out of their houses. You can just submit expense reimbursement. 2. Pakistan focused a. If we don't have a similar service as mentioned above then we should find a way to donate money to a trust or organization that is trying to provide food to people during this lock down. I would like to recommend Saylani Trust. https://www.saylaniwelfare.com/home Please vote for this if you agree. If you have better ideas then please create causes so people could vote for those. We do need to move quickly on this because this needs to happen now. -Tayyab

Donate for Covid-19 Medical supplies

https://www.projectcure.org/procure As hospitals across the U.S. brace for a surge in patients, health care workers say the protective measures taken over the next few weeks will be critical, according to CBS News' Carter Evans. Some government leaders worry the coronavirus pandemic could stretch hospitals to their breaking point while medical equipment shortages threaten to put doctors, nurses and patients at risk. "Nurses are being asked to actually reuse masks, including surgical masks, which provide no protection," Executive Director of National Nurses United Bonnie Castillo said. The medical supplies and medical equipment Project C.U.R.E. delivers to severely resource-limited communities save lives, make diagnosis and treatment possible, protect health workers and ensure better outcomes for surgery and emergency care. ProC.U.R.E. is Project C.U.R.E.’s linchpin program, through which we receive medical supplies and equipment from U.S. hospitals, medical manufacturers, wholesale distributors and individual donors. We operate large distribution facilities across the United States where we receive, process and ship these generous in-kind donations to hospitals, clinics and community health centers in need around the world. Because of our large international distribution network, almost every type of medical item can be accepted, and all donations are receipted for tax purposes.
