CARE is the pioneer of public and private school partnerships. In 1998, we initiated a public-private partnership with the City District Government of Lahore, which gave us the jurisdiction to adopt ten non-functional government schools. We’ve taken a multitude of public schools under our wing since then, many with low enrolment numbers, high dropout rates, unqualified teachers and crumbling facilities.
The Access To English Language programme was established in 2004 and was designed to improve our students’ English language skills. We understand the importance of having a command over English in the professional world and want to enable our students to be proficient in its application. 10,014 students are currently enrolled in the programme.
CARE operates a teacher-training centre where our teachers undergo rigorous programmes. These teachers use their enhanced skills to provide a high-quality learning experience to our students.
The CARE Scholarship Programme was established in 2001 to make higher education accessible to students who did not have enough financial backing to complete their studies. Our scholars are enrolled in some of the finest academic institutions in the country.
Out of the Classroom
CARE Club is an extracurricular programme that gives our students a chance to hone their skills in creative specialities outside of the classroom. Activities include writing, public speaking and theatre.
