Education is a fundamental human right and widespread poverty in Pakistan has deprived thousands of children from this valuable gift. NUR Foundation has been actively involved in providing education to underprivileged children through formal as well as non-formal schools. The focus of this program has not only been on academic education but also on developing students’ mental and physical capacities.
For this reason, we organized funfairs for the students of Malikpur and Lakhodair on November 19 and 26, 2011.Students were given an opportunity to show their talents in a variety of ways, they delivered speeches, sang songs, presented tableaus on national issues and performed different skits.
Similarly, a recreational trip to Sky Land Lahore was arranged on January 7, 2012 .A total of 1550 students were provided transport, food and tickets on discounted rates by the Nur Foundation. Students were extremely excited about this trip. Lunch was served at one o clock.This trip was not just arranged for recreational purposes, students learnt how to move about in a group as a team member, they learnt discipline and on top of it all, they got a chance to experience new things around them. This type of opportunity is not less than a blessing for those who can not afford.
It would not have been possible without the generous donations of our supporters. These schools have now been expanded and are catering to an increasing number of needy children. Thank you for giving the gift of Education to children who could only dream of being educated due to financial limitations.

Uniforms distribution Ceremony
Uniforms were distributed among the deserving students of all ABNI Educational Centers. Ch. M. Munir Finance Secretary of C.B.O distributed uniform among the deserving students of Lakhu Dair.
We recently witnessed an exuberant event at ABNI’s School in Lakhodair.
The FunFair was aimed at generating a healthy learning environment where the student can chip in dynamically in a learning process by cultivating an exercise of participation.
The staff at Lakhodair was the backbone in achieving the motives of the Funfair. They played a vital role in not only organizing the event, but also exploiting the talents and infusing a wave of confidence among the students so that they can come up and perform in the crowd.
The students at the ABNI Lakhodair exposed true festive sprit. The theme of the funfair was a fancy dress show. The students decked up and mimicked their favorite characters. The most eye-catching performance was by the two students who were dressed up as Tarzan and Charlie Chaplin. Apart from this there were other exciting acts, plays and dances.
The event ended with a prize distribution ceremony, where the teachers gave away various gifts to the participants of the fancy dress show.
The event was well attended by the staff and all the students, and was funded entirely by the Fatima Memorial Hospital and the contributions made by its generous donors.
FMH acknowledges all the support as it helps towards its commitment to fabricating an impartial system of health and education for the deprived and poor sector of the society by privileging them financially and socially.
