OUR AUDIENCE

Our vision is holistic. It is for each and every individual in society. We believe that sustainable change can be achieved by developing the lives of individuals and communities. Building the character and developing humanity is the only way to bring a positive change in society.

Considering this we equally focus on the children, particularly school going children as they are in the best of life to learn and adopt good practices for their life and impact or benefit society. Similarly, we believe it is equally important that we focus on parents and elders. If they are on the same wavelength and of the same approach then building the characters and developing the human being will be easy.

Although the themes and objectives of programmes are similar for children and adults but considering the activities and engagement plans we have two main categories

1) School Programmes

2) Adults Programmes

WHAT IS TPI

Total Physical Interaction (TPI) is one of the most effective method of teaching. Many educationists have recommended and endorsed this method after experiments. It has been observed that children find it very interesting and useful in learning difficult subjects and topics easily.

Converting this method and making this useful for learning of Qur’an is a big achievement by the researchers and trainers of CEF under the guidance of the founder of this method Dr Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahim. CEF is the only legal entity with the complete rights and sole ownership of content and method adopted for learning of Qur’an through this method.
