Since early 2020, Covid-19 put a stop to all social activities including fundraising events, across the globe. In Pakistan, education got a big hit! It became a challenge to continue the education process online for children in all educational institutions, in particular children of lower income groups.
After a gap of nearly 2 years, the Supporters of TCF (STCF) organised an exciting event, Cycle For Change for much needed funds and support, in order to continue the journey of literacy. This was a wholesome and fun experience for individuals and members of leading cycling clubs of Karachi. The cyclists dedicated this day to cycle and raise funds for the children of TCF. Over 250 cyclists from Karachi as well as a few from Lahore participated in the event. They cycled early morning from Seaview and other areas of Karachi to TCF Qayummabad Campus where they met TCF students and took a tour of the school. They applauded the efforts of TCF to promote quality education in Pakistan and to nurture the dreams of the most deserving children.
