To empower the under-privileged people through quality education

  • Critical and analytical thinking.

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
