“141 Schools for Peace” is an initiative of The Citizens Foundation (TCF), in partnership with the 141Schools.org project. It is a global commitment to build 141 school-units across Pakistan, each school will display a plaque dedicated in memory of each of the innocent victims of the Peshawar school attack on December 16, 2014.
In response to this horrific and universal tragedy, we have decided to channel our grief into action. It has renewed our resolve to fighting ignorance and intolerance in all its forms with the most powerful weapon of all: education. In this defining moment, we believe that only education can equip Pakistan to tackle its formidable challenges: by enlightening minds, instilling democratic values, and building a conscientious and tolerant civil society.
We call upon concerned people across the world to step forward to support the movement to educate Pakistan. Each of the 141 schools will have a plaque dedicated to the children and teachers who perished on the 16th of December and will serve as a beacon of light resisting the advance of extremism in
