1 YEAR UPDATE
A year ago, 141schools.org partnered with The Citizens Foundation (TCF) to launch the ‘141 Schools for Peace’ initiative. We committed to building a school in the memory of each of the innocent lives lost in the horrific attack on a Peshawar school in December 2014. Thank you for supporting this effort and bringing the vision of 141 Schools for Peace closer to becoming a reality.
We are pleased to share with you that, thanks to an incredible outpouring of support from all over the world, construction has now started on the 23rd TCF school unit as part of the 141 Schools for Peace campaign.
While a number of donors have generously committed to building an entire school, helpful contributions from all other donors are being used for the construction of a new primary school in Mansehra, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to be called the ‘141 Schools for Peace Campus’. Construction for this campus will be completed within 2016 and the school will have a capacity of 180 students.
The Peshawar tragedy will be etched in our collective memory, as a reminder of the destructive power of ignorance and intolerance. We are confident that the 141 Schools for Peace we build together will stand as a lasting symbol of hope, resilience and our shared resolve to educate all the children of Pakistan.
Thank you for supporting our campaign.
