Tareen Education Foundation (TEF)

Tareen Education Foundation (TEF) is a nonprofit organisation, established under The Societies Registration Act of 1860, with a mandate to improve quality of education in Pakistan, primarily operating in the rural areas of Southern Punjab. Its special focus is provision of education to marginalized communities, such as the rural poor and women, who are so often ignored from development interventions by the public sector or by international aid agencies. TEF feels that it has the responsibility and the capacity to help these communities educate themselves and become productive and active citizens of Pakistan. TEF operations are largely supported by generous contributions from Mr. Jahangir Khan Tareen and business enterprises that he controls.
