TFPs mission is to become nationwide organization starting from the Capital,
According to TFP, “The educational problem and its scale in Pakistan are enormous and the causes are so complex that no single organization or individual alone can address them. TFP 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. We recruit and train top graduates and young professionals from all fields to a two-year Fellowship during which they teach in low-income schools that lack quality teachers. Fellows work in partnership with schools and communities to improve students’ learning outcomes and broaden their life opportunities. After the completion of the Fellowship, our Alumni use their experiences to tackle Pakistan’s most pressing problems in education, such as rewriting textbooks and curricula, testing innovations, furthering research, training teachers and creating model schools.”
