Family of plane crash victims sets up Rs15m Sadqa-e-Jaria
TCF endowment fund established in memory of Zain, Sarah Polani
A memorial fund has been established by the family of the deceased Zain Polani and his wife Sarah Polani, who along with their three children, lost their lives in the tragic plane crash of the PIA flight PK 8303 on 22nd May, 2020 in Karachi.
The endowment fund for Sadqa-e-Jariah has been set up in collaboration with The Citizens Foundation on its website with the goal of providing quality education to the less privileged children of Pakistan.
The Citizens Foundation is a professionally managed, non-profit organization set up in 1995 by a group of citizens, educating 266,000 students from urban slums and rural areas in 1,652 purpose-built schools across Pakistan.
“Zain had many causes dear to his heart and one of them was to support underprivileged kids in Pakistan. TCF offers a great opportunity for us to create a Sadqa-e-Jariya in Zain and Sarah's name,” shares Zain’s brother, Faizan Polani. The family aims to raise Rs15 million for the cause.
TCF is a strong advocate of the belief that a truly informed and educated society forms the foundation of a progressive state and instils in its citizens the ability to adapt and evolve with changing times.
It is a non-profit organization set up in 1995 by a group of citizens who wanted to bring about positive social change through education. 25 years later, TCF is now one of Pakistan’s leading organizations in the field of education for the less privileged, educating 266,000 students across 1,652 schools in Pakistan.
