Al Mustafa Welfare Trust® is running 7 schools and 2 orphanages in Pakistan, Kashmir and Bangladesh on a routine basis, where thousands of students are attaining their primary and secondary education. We have invested considerable resources to ensure the highest level of quality free education is available to the poor as well as providing school uniform, textbooks and free travel.
We also provide opportunities to attain education and continue the normal learning routine even during natural disasters or emergencies. In such difficult circumstances disruptions arise in all aspects of daily life including education. However, we believe that disasters or emergencies should not be a hindrance and therefore Al Mustafa Welfare Trust® ensures that children should continue their education in the event of such calamities by providing “Emergency Tent Schools” to keep the routine of education alive.
We have established 800 tent schools so far around the globe during disasters and emergencies. During the Pakistan Sindh Flood Disaster, we provided 50 tent schools as well as free books, school stationary, school bags and food.
