An initiative to Own l Educate l Sustain

“How can I light a candle instead of cursing the darkness?” was what a group of students thought when doing a research on child labour in Pakistan. It was highly distressing to see a large number of under-privileged children engaged in various forms of labour due to sheer inaccessibility of educational opportunities in the area.

They, hence, took an initiative: An initiative to Own, Educate and Sustain. In 2011, a team of enthusiastic youngsters started off by assuming the responsibility for the education of 30 children in a deprived area of Shahdra. The Ghani Grammar School, the first initiative of the Ghani Welfare Foundation, aimed to provide the best possible education to socially and economically disadvantaged children. The team pledged to sustain the initiative and to ensure that the children were equipped with the indispensable tools of education and learning for a fulfilling life ahead.

The Ghani Welfare Foundation is a registered non-profit organization which was started in February 2011 with an aim to educate the underprivileged children of Pakistan and provide them with equal opportunities, so that they could reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the world. GWF believes that the key to alleviate poverty and solve the many other issues that  Pakistan faces is through widespread education of society.
