We have two schools in Bhara Kahu and Sheikhupura, which are operated by Moqah Foundation.
The Bhara Kahu school opened in 2009 and currently has 220 students. The building provides extra space for the whole school to continue on the path of learning and knowledge. Parents frequently meet with teachers to learn how to best support their children and teachers participate in annual training to foster critical thinking among their students. Bhara Kahu is situated on the outskirts of Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan. Our school in Bhara Kahu provides a safe haven for students and families in the midst of a dangerous area.
The Sheikhupura school opened in November of 2009 and currently has 200 students. It is filled with children who treat their education as a gift. The elders, teachers, and families of the Sheikhupura community along with Moqah Foundation worked hard to create a school in which the children could call their own. The children are inspired by their teachers to dream big and do their best work to build a brighter future. Sheikhupura is situated on the outskirts of Lahore in the Punjab and is home to over 70,000 people.
