Rukhsana Foundation opened an elementary school in January 2008 for the underprivileged children whose families could not afford to educate them. Beside’s education all school supplies and facilities are provided to students free of cost. Many of these children collect garbage in order to supplement their parents’ income, and one of our goals is to provide them with basic skills and crafts that can qualify them to work and earn money in a safe and healthy way.
The school not only provides a basic, elementary level of education to the children, but also teaches them basic social skills and manners so that they get prepared to compete in the real world. These skills include general personal hygiene, prevention of basic illnesses and Moral Sciences. Essential medical check-ups and vaccination is also provided to all students, free of charge.
In addition to recreational and educational activities, school field trips are arranged for the children, further enabling them to integrate into the society.
Mrs. Rukhsana Tahirkheli personally supervises the school and deals with the problems, if any concerning the children .She treats the children with love and kindness and has taught her staff the same. In the last three years there has been a visible transformation in the children.
