The TMF was established as an NGO in 1987, with a vision by Pakistani community in USA to promote the cause of education so often neglected by the private and public sector. TMF’s view is that the only way to lead our nation into the 21st century is through human resource development. Therefore, the main aim of TMF isto build the academic proficiency with the vision, values and the will to act as an instrument of human resource development in bring about the change of the highest order in the individual for the Millat and humanity at large.
In line with its mission the Tameer-e-Millat Foundation, has setup educational institutions in various parts of the country, providing facilities of education particularly to the deprived masses who otherwise, would have no opportunity of education. TMF has achieved the following so far:
- 22 Formal Schools
- 290 Non-Formal Schools
- 5 Vocational Training Institutions
- TMF Education City
Tameer-e-Millat Education City (TMEC):
It is being built at a site providing a beautiful scenic background of Khairi Murat Mountains. The site is located 50 kms southwest of Islamabad and is 2 km north of village Ratwal, Tehsil Fateh Jang, District Attock. TMEC is planned to be constructed on an area of 500 acres of land. Besides serving as an educational complex, it will also serve as the major center for research and development in the field of education. The main features of TMEC are:
- Tameer-e-Millat Institute of Teachers Education (TMITE)
- Tameer-e-Millat School of Excellence
- Educational Research and Development Center
- Shifa Tameer-e-Millat University
- Convention Center

Sardar Tameer-e-Millat Schools:
The founder of Saba Trust, Mr. Saghir Aslam donated 5 acres of prime land onToba Tek Singh Road only 2 miles for most students to travel. Saghir Aslam also paid for the building for Boy’s campus. Soon after he felt that this building was not sufficient he partnered with Edhi Foundation and built 17 rooms Girls School next to the Boys School.
Universal Primary Education (UPE):
Saba Trust is helping needy primary school children by providing books, school supplies and other materials. We also conduct a prize distribution program to help motivate children and give them additional incentives to attend and complete school. Saba Trust currently assists over 10,000 students. This project is ultimately adding to the collective efforts for achieving the Universal Primary Education (UPE) a UNICEF program which is part of one of the Millennium Development Goals.
Distribution of Books:
Saba Trust provides resources for the purchase and distribution of books, notebooks and other school supplies for children in need. In Pakistan, parents must absorb the cost of books and other materials, and many are unable to afford these items, leaving their children without the tools necessary to succeed. The cost of books for one year is just $10.00/child or less!
In the village of Murree Tehsil, Saba Trust provided 115 young students with school books at a ceremony held at Murree Arts Council that enabled them to begin their education journey. Furthermore, Saba Trust has paid theirschool fees for five years, to ensure that they will have received their primary education at the very least. Following this, Khurshid Abbasi, a local landlord and social worker promised to provide additional support for educating the children in the area. In addition, district officials were inspired to commit funds for books/copies for another 1000 students. Thus, a sound foundation for the education of hundreds of children in the area was laid by Saba Trust’s initial support for 115 students.
Saba Trust provides scholarships to students to enable them to attend elementary school, middle school, high school, college and medical college students. The scholarships cover the cost of tuition and supplies.
Support for Schools:
Saba Trust provides financial support to numerous schools throughout Pakistan. Many of the schools are in villages and towns where children have few or lack educational opportunities. Support is provided to primary schools for girls and boys, middle schools, and high schools.
Al-Falah Scholarship Scheme:
Brain child of Br. Abdul Shakoor, this project serves many students. Wisdom House is a state of the art excellent institution. We encourage you to support them fully without any doubt it is the best exemplary institution in Pakistan.
Schools in India:
Saba Trust is committed to children’s education. It is hoped that a literate and informed citizenry in both Pakistan and India will help build bridges between the two neighbors. New generations of young Indians and Pakistanis can emphasize cooperation and mutual support rather than conflict and misunderstanding. Supporting educational efforts in India is one way Saba Trust can assist this process.
Bushra Aslam was one of the founding members of the Board of Directors. Saghir and Bushra Aslam visited the first sixty schools that were opened in Mianwali, without a doubt one of the most backward areas in Pakistan that lacks effective basic education, electricity and clean drinking water. DIL is a project that is worth helping.

The Women’s Institute of Science & Humanities was conceived as a full-fledged institute for women where the most modern disciplines are taught in an Islamic environment. The project was initiated and is overseen by the Foundation of the Faithful (FOF), a non-profit organization. During the last few years, a 2 1/2 acre plot in Islamabad was procured for the university site. Saghir Aslam of the Saba Trust was the first individual to visit the proposed site in 1997, when it was nothing but scrublands. He donated a substantial sum to help begin work on the initial structure for the university. A tall building covering 40,000 square feet now stands where once there was nothing. Young women in Pakistan as well as from other countries including the U.S. have enrolled at the institute.
A large percentage of Muslim women throughout the world are living in desperate conditions. In many countries, they have been deprived of basic rights guaranteed under the auspices of Islam. In many other places, they have been discouraged from participating in political, social and nation-building activities. These deprivations are contrary to the very basic teachings of Islam. Foundation of the Faithful, a not-for-profit organization based and incorporated in New York, is working to create more human environment for women. The Foundation is dedicated to setting up viable institution of learning for women. Objectives of FOF is to reduce illiteracy ratio among Muslim women, these institutions should be dedicated to the progress of women, provide financial assistance in the form of stipends and scholarships to those women who show excellence and to hold lectures, seminars, and workshops.
We encourage you to help FOF with generous donations for the success of these unique projects. We accept zakat for zakat related programs.
Wisdom House was established in 1994 in a remote village of District Gujrat in Northern Punjab, with objective to promote education among women folks. Education among women in rural areas of Pakistan is disturbingly low. Lower than 10% in most areas. Wisdom Society a group of zealous Pakistanis, (trained and educated abroad) took initiative, selected the site and started the first school session in 1994, with 70 students, in an incomplete building. Allah SWT blessed the devotion and dedication of managing body. The teaching staff worked day & night with sincerity and skill and slowly people of the area started showering their trust and confidence. After 11 years Wisdom House became the largest educational project for women in rural Punjab. At present Wisdom Campus is serving about 3000 students altogether.

Teachers Incentive Program:
The Teachers Incentive Program (TIPs) is an innovative, cost-effective and affordable way to improve education in Pakistan. The program was initiated by Qasim Bajwa and Saghir Aslam. Considering the rapidly deteriorating situation of education/literacy in Pakistan, a pilot project was launched in 1998 at Khewra, District Jehlum Pakistan, to improve education by utilizing the existing infrastructure (i.e., the local government schools). Initial results have been very encouraging and Saba Trust encourages more entrepreneurs to try this approach on their own. The cost is affordable for an individual or a small group of supporters. Local Education Committee staff members monitor the school for academic progress, cleanliness, and confidence and character- building efforts, along with basic religious knowledge.
OPF Girl’s College:

The college has enabled overseas families to send their daughters to Pakistan to gain an appreciation of their rich cultural heritage as an alternative to the purely secular education available elsewhere. Over 3,000 students are enrolled annually, with 2/3 of them from overseas. The college is committed to international education standards and has developed a comprehensive curricula.
