Meet Javaria Yousaf, one of TCFโs extraordinary alumni determined to enlighten and empower her community in Minhala by returning to teach at the school she graduated from. Passionate about Mathematics, Javaria brings the magic of numbers to her classroom at TCFโs Shirin Sultan Dossa Campus-3 in Minhala, 20 km away from Lahore. When asked what keeps her so motivated every day, she confides: โThe change happening around me because of education is so evident. Although it hasnโt been long since I was a student in these same classrooms, girls I teach today are much more confident and participate actively. I watch them grow and develop every day. What more do I want for motivation?โ Our teachers plant the seeds in our education that build our foundation, and without them we wouldnโt be anywhere. We are so thankful to be supporting such a great cause, one that gives the underprivileged children of Pakistan quality teachers like Javaria Yousaf, but more importantly, a quality education. #TeachersAppreciationWeek
“Shortridge High School’s mission is to challenge high-ability scholars from diverse socio-economic and cultural backgrounds to become lifelong learners who develop personal and social awareness.
- Adopted Shortridge High School as a sister school to the Unity Campus in 2014
- Donated $5000 each of the last two years to help students financially unable to attend a trip to Washington DC with their classmates. We believe it is of tremendous importance that students visit the capital of our wonderful country so they can learn our history, learn how our country works, and be inspired to do good!
