    Organizational structure: FESF and its three subprograms (Deaf Reach, Eduserve, Community Services), are governed by articles of incorporation filed in its Articles of Memorandum and registration as a charitable foundation under the laws of the Security and Exchange Commission, Pakistan. These articles were developed by legal advisors who continue to serve the organization. Its strategic development is supervised by a seven-member board of directors whose roles and responsibilities are clearly outlined and defined. Each serves a minimum of two years, and new candidates are selected according to their ability to help FESF increase capacity and improve systems. The board meets twice a year to assess progress and to revisit future organizational priorities. It communicates with FESF staff through the executive director, who keeps the board apprised of new developments and/or decisions that need to be made. Administrative team members are also in frequent contact with board members. Trustees exercise direct jurisdiction over large capital expenditures and over new directions, programs, schools or policies. Daily operations are supervised by the administrative team, which is staffed by local and foreign professionals with years of field-based experience in education and international social services. There is a formalized management hierarchy of directors, resource mobilization specialists, program officers and school administrators, including teachers. Team members meet regularly with non-trustee stakeholders including students, parents, volunteers and donors to ensure the reciprocal flow of information regarding program efficacy and to best meet the needs of beneficiaries. Parents and students, in particular, are solicited for formative and summative evaluations to assess program impact on an annual basis. In addition, news updates, annual reports, and yearly audited financial statements are made available in print and on the FESF website. Media are regularly invited to the projects to raise public awareness about the positive impact FESF is having in local communities.
