Success Stories

Our alumni are testament to the hard work and dedication of the CARE Foundation. In response to a failing educational system in Pakistan, along with the lack of opportunities for students, we took on the responsibility to create a positive change.

The CARE Foundation has impacted on the lives of thousands of students, in the face of dire disadvantage.It has raised the standards of education nationwide, setting the stage for growth. Below are a few of our successes from over the years.

CARE introduced the world to us.”CARE Foundation alumni, Hashim Malik

Muhammad Umair

Muhammad Umair, aged 34, is Project Lead CCE (Creativity, Culture and Education) at the CARE Foundation.

I went to the CARE adopted city district boy’s school, Quila Lachman in Lahore. My family could not afford a private school, so I had to go to the nearest government school.

The education I had at the start of my school years was very different until CARE adopted the school. Before then, the quality of education was not good. There were issues with government schools everywhere. Different classes were merged because of a shortage of teachers, and sometimes teachers didn’t even turn up.

Dr Farah Azam

CARE alumni Dr Farah Azam hopes to one day open up her own hospital in Shahdara, Lahore. The young doctor works at the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital. The eldest of five siblings, Azam grew up in Shahdara. Having completed her schooling at a CARE Foundation school in the area, she knew she wanted to make a career in the medical field.

“I just knew that I wanted to be a doctor for the rest of my life,” she says, “There are no doctors in my family, and for some reason, it used to give me a bit of an inferiority complex. That’s when I decided I had to get out of the career comfort zone that I saw so many of my family members stuck in.”

Sana Khan

As an ambitious student at the CARE 1 high school, Sana remembers the extreme lengths her mother, who used to work as a maid locally, had to go to ensure her children were offered the best education in that district.

“Regardless of her hardships, my mother ensured that we received a top-quality education.”

The CARE 1 schools allowed deserving students to receive quality education even though they couldn’t afford it.
