Not one of us can deny the importance of an education – it is the right of every human being to have an education and to understand what he or she capable of and giving them the chance to be a productive member of society.
The state of education is less than satisfactory in Pakistan with only a 58 percent literacy rate and with over 25 million children out of school, the second highest in the world. Today, 1 in 10 children out of school is a Pakistan.
Looking at the deplorable state of affairs Fatima Memorial Hospital initiated its outreach program in 1985 to provide basic health care. In 1996 it was expanded into education with the formation of schools. Today we are proud to say over 18000 children have completed their schooling through these schools in the outreach areas of Lahore with many studying further to achieve their dreams.
Currently 1850 children are studying in our school and with your help we want to induct more children who need to be educated. We are playing our humble role in educating our generation and with your help we hope to expand our reach.
“I might be young but I have dreams”
Hello, my name is Alishba Anwar and I am class 2. I have been studying in the NUR schools since 2009. I like coming to school and I am good in maths but my writing needs more practice.
I am not sure what I want to be in the future; maybe a doctor or a teacher. I like to draw so maybe an artist but one thing I am sure of is that I will finish school
