SABA SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE
A Learning Haven for Underprivileged Children in Pakistan

BACKGROUND

Education is a fundamental human right that every child should be afforded, yet regrettably, not all children in Pakistan have the privilege of accessing quality private education opportunities due to financial barrier. To address this critical issue, Saba Trust, with the invaluable support and collaboration of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), has taken a substantial step forward in ensuring greater educational access and equity. The lack of quality private education options poses a significant barrier for many Pakistani children, limiting their ability to reach their full academic and personal potential.

In recognition of this pressing concern, the Saba Trust, a dedicated non-profit organization, has partnered with the esteemed USAID to spearhead an initiative aimed at expanding educational opportunities and enhancing the overall quality of private schooling within the country. This collaborative effort represents a pivotal stride towards addressing the educational disparities that have long plagued certain segments of the Pakistani population. By leveraging the resources, expertise, and commitment of both the Saba Trust and USAID, this initiative holds the promise of transforming the educational landscape and ensuring that every child, regardless of their socioeconomic background, can access the quality education they deserve.

INTRODUCTION

This school is providing free American-standard private education to orphans and underprivileged children in Rawalpindi, Pakistan.
