Education &


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.

Currently, Pakistan has the world’s second-highest number of out-of-school children, only 18.4 million children finish primary school.
An estimated 22.8 million children aged 5-16 are out of school, representing 44% of the total population in this age group.
32% of primary school age girls are out of school in Pakistan, and by 9th grade only 13% of girls are still in school.
HDF has helped 100,000 children from over 30,000 households to finish their primary education.
