A social order that ensures individual liberties and collective well being is the vision that inspires us into action.

Mission

To empower the under-privileged people through quality education

Objectives

1. Provision of free subsidized quality educational services to the under-served communities in FATA/Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

2. Building a system of education that develops in students:

  • Critical and analytical thinking.
  • Problem solving and social skills.
  • Literary and artistic faculties.

3. Establishing a community based system of education through Community Education Committee (CEC) bodies.

4. Empowering women by educating and involving them in decision making processes at all levels.

 

Our Inspiration

We take our inspiration from the Azad schools initiative of Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan (1890-1988), dearly called Baacha Khan by his people. He was the 20th century Pashtun reformer and non-violent freedom fighter of the Indian sub-continent against the British rule.

Achievements

We, in a short span of four years, have succeeded to establish fourteen Baacha Khan schools (Hyperlink Schools map)across Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA, Pakistan; imparting free, liberal & quality education to 2487 male & female children. readmore
