CARE Foundation came into being in 1988 when a group of concerned citizens came together to rehabilitate flood victims in Sheikhupura district, Pakistan. While helping them rebuild their mud homes that had collapsed in the flood, CARE realized that there was no school in the area. CARE then decided that the best way to help the affected people would be to build a school, as it’s only through education that they can stand on their own feet and help themselves in the future.
In 1990, CARE built its first school to provide education to the children of the area. CARE also established a dispensary to offer affordable primary health care and an industrial home to provide income-generating opportunities to the women of the area.
Currently, CARE is educating 300,000 children in 888 schools across Pakistan.
We have managed to improve thousands of lives over the years by bringing good quality education to the underprivileged children.
CARE Foundation is offering a number of programs that not just help our students but the teachers as well to improve their skills and creativity in the classroom and outside.
The Access to English Language Program was launched in 2004 with the objective of developing communication skills of children to provide them an opportunity to compete equally in the world. The program has grown exponentially over the years and is currently being run in 86 CARE schools, benefitting over 15,000 students across Pakistan.
