The Citizens Foundation


Almost half of Pakistani children never attend school. In 1996, some concerned Pakistanis started The Citizens Foundation to address this problem. They began a network of low-cost, privately-run schools in the heart of communities, where boys and girls can walk to school together and not worry their families about traveling long distances. Only charging what families can afford, they have built 910 schools in Pakistan serving over 126,000 children. One student at a time, they are broadening support for education across the country.


“Time and time again, Kikim Media knocks it out of the park when it comes to crafting a succinct, impactful film for recipients of the Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship. From story crafting to budget planning and execution, they are thoughtful and thorough with an exceptional eye to keeping a story engaging whilst covering a broad range of issues. Simply put, no matter how challenging the topic or film shoot, Kikim has always delivered.”
