Technical and professional education shall be made generally available and higher education shall be equally accessible to all on the basis of merit. - United Nations Human Rights Article 26
Al Mustafa Welfare Trust is running schools and orphanages across Pakistan, Kashmir and Bangladesh, where thousands of students are attaining their primary and secondary education. We have invested considerable resources to ensure that the highest level of quality free education is available to the poor and that underprivileged children are provided with school uniform, textbooks and free travel.
Our Student Sponsorship Scheme focuses on giving less fortunate children brighter prospects for the future. Alongside our orphan sponsorship programme, we aim to help thousands of children living in poverty around the world.
With your continued support, we have already opened ten primary schools in Lahore alone, helped 1500 children receive a quality education and assisted in the provision of necessary equipment such as books and uniforms.
However, our work isn’t done yet, and we are always grateful for your help in steering these children’s lives in the right direction. Encouraging and enabling them to achieve a proper education can have an incredible impact on a bigger scale. As well as significantly reducing substance and child abuse, education provides both children and their communities with the assurance of a better future.
Education in Adversity
We also provide opportunities for children to attain an education and continue a 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 children subjected to disasters and emergencies should not have to see their education or their future suffer. That is why Al Mustafa Welfare Trust ensures that children continue their education in the event of such calamities. By providing Emergency Tent Schools we can help children hold on to the passion and potential that education inspires.
We have established more than 800 tent schools around the globe during disasters and emergencies. During the Pakistan Sindh Flood Disaster, we provided 50 tent schools as well as free books, school stationery, school bags and food.
