141 Schools on a missionWe are on a mission to build 141 schools in Pakistan

Each school will be dedicated to the more than 141 children and teachers who perished in the Peshawar school terrorist attack on December 16, 2014.

To help achieve this mission, 141Schools.org has partnered with The Citizens Foundation (TCF) on their global initiative “141 Schools For Peace” – a shared mission to build 141 TCF schools across Pakistan, in memory of the lives lost.

We hope our efforts today will serve as a beacon of light resisting the advance of extremism in our society and help in the fight to educate the children of Pakistan.
