What we aim for

CARE Projects & Programs

We’ve uniquely designed processes, programmes and work flows to ensure that every child benefits from a quality education. These are developed to make sure that the children have access to a secure and stable environment, with a focus on learning.

Today, the CARE Foundation offers a number of programs that helps not just students, but teachers to improve their skills and creativity.

Scholarship Program

CARE Foundation established a scholarship programme in 2001 to provide financial assistance to bright and deserving students who wanted to pursue higher education. It provides funds for tuition fees, books, stationery, examination fees and transport, plus hostel expenses.

Each year, CARE Foundation awards 1000 scholarships. Graduating from the some of the country’s most well-known universities, this program has been a life-changing initiative for countless families whose children have gone on to become professionals such as doctors, engineers and bankers.

Teacher Training Program

CARE Foundation’s most valuable asset is its staff of over 7,000 teachers. In order to ensure that a high quality of teaching is provided in all schools, CARE Foundation established its own Teacher Training Centre (TTC) in Lahore in 2001. All teachers undergo specially designed training from lesson planning, student psychology, language and communication to teaching methodologies. The average teacher-student ratio in CARE Foundation schools is 1 teacher for every 30 students.

STEM Program

The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program was launched in 2018 to give students a hands-on and interactive experience of the practical aspects of various STEM disciplines such as, Aerodynamics, Botany and Robotics.

Project Based Learning (PBL)

PBL enables students to create projects that are based on real-world practices or complex questions. It allows children to demonstrate their capabilities while working independently. The project helps develop 21st century skills in students such as creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking and problem solving.

Digital Deployment

CARE Foundation started digital deployment in two of its CARE Foundation adopted government schools. Students are provided with tablets to develop 21st-century essential skills, such as digital literacy, self-learning attitudes, and increased motivation and confidence.

Smartphone Program

In response to COVID school closures, a smartphone programme was initiated in 2020 to engage students via WhatsApp, where teachers shared weekly study schemes and online quizzes. Keeping in view the limited resources/access to internet, students were provided with offline applications. This programme has now turned into a core offer during the summer vacation.

CARE Craft

After the first CARE Foundation school was set up in 1991, a vocational centre was also set-up to generate economic opportunities for women affected by the devastating floods. It soon turned into a fully-fledged enterprise development programme, now known as CARE Craft. An extensive range of skilfully crafted hand-made accessories are produced, which help in creating employment and generating funds, which are invested in CARE Foundation schools.
