To sustain and improve the quality of on-going educational progress and related activities, CCF is always in need of financial and technical support of its committed friends and partners. DCHD is one such tested partner of CCF that continuously provides financial and technical support to help bring change in the lives of underprivileged children and communities through quality education. Reference to CCF –DCHD agreement (August/ September 2010). DCHD is kind enough to provide financial support for CCF 50 Non-Formal Education (NFE) Centers in terms of teachers’ salary for six months (Oct 2010 to March 2011). DCHD’s timely support helped to improve the quality and capacity of CCF teachers. The project activities also contributed in increasing literacy rate of underprivileged children mainly girls. This six month project helped to educate children in selected labor intensive Districts of Punjab. CCF looks forward to new partners/friends to join hands in the provision of basic education to under privileged / working or out of school children in Pakistan
