Providing quality education to children in marginalized communities is our flagship program. HDF has built 250 formal and non-formal schools with modern facilities equipped with remote learning capabilities. We run regular student enrollment campaigns and regular teacher trainings to keep them updated on methodologies.
Our Education & Literacy program is designed to teach children decision making by helping them learn life skills including critical and analytical thinking. Teaching civic sense is also an integral part of the program. We lay special emphasis on gender equality and community participation while taking local norms and culture into account.

THANKS Scholarships were initiated by the alumni of Pakistani educational institutes residing in US wanting to payback to their country by helping students. THANKS stands for Thanks from Alumni for New Knowledge Seekers. These performance-based scholarships are offered to deserving and promising students to support them in their pursuit of educational goals so that they may contribute positively towards the socio-economic development of the society. So far, a total of 869 students have been awarded scholarships from various donors.
A minimum donation of $10,000 is required to establish one THANKS Scholarship. This donation becomes part of the HDF endowment fund.

This gift was given to provide for the basic needs of vulnerable children of Tando Muhammad Khan, Mardan, Muzaffarabad and the Islamabad environs. The project ensures that children will be able to go to school instead of working to supplement the family income. In 2020, 106 annual stipends and 100% of quarterly stipends (Rs. 17,500 per vulnerable child) was provided to children registered under this program.
In 2017, a non-formal education program called the Adolescents and Adult Literacy Training Program (AALTP) was launched with support from Sindh Education Foundation for out of school adolescents (10 to 17 years) and adults (18 to 35). Karachi localities of Malir (village Adam Hingoro) and Qasim Town (village Haji Jangi Khan) were part of this project which focused on providing formal education and technical skills, thus enabling them to be self-employed and self-reliant. As the first batch graduated, the second batch of AALTP is ready to start its journey.
GEHOTS (Gender Equity and Higher Order Thinking Skills) is a research project on improving the perceptions and attitudes of boys and girls (Grade 6 to 8) on gender equity by refining their higher-order thinking and communication skills. Urdu was chosen as the subject of instruction. Urdu teachers were trained on how to create lessons on gender equity so that the learning outcome would be behavioral changes. Teacher training manuals were designed during the Covid-19 lockdown via online meetings with neuro educationists and consultants. As a result, HDF has adopted this teaching methodology for all schools.
