Founded in 2014, Moawin Foundation is a not-for-profit organization (NPO) registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) under Section 42 of the Companies Act 2017, with Incorporation number, 0090324, and National Tax Number, 4331812-6. It is an approved NPO under Section 2(36) of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001, and has signed an MOU with the Economic Affairs Division of the Government of Pakistan to receive funding from international donors. Through education, skills development, and vocational training, we aim to ensure quality education and create opportunities to address the issue of economic instability. Our mission is to empower underprivileged and vulnerable segments of society, particularly the burgeoning youth population of Pakistan. We believe that public sector schools, with the highest outreach in the country, including Pakistan's remotest areas, can be a key driver in improving the public education system and enhancing its quality.
While the government has the resources to establish and maintain the infrastructure for educational institutions, there is a lack of capacity in ensuring sustainability. This gap can be filled with proper support mechanisms in schools. With the support of generous donors, we have improved the infrastructure of schools by constructing and restoring classrooms and washrooms, and by installing water filtration plants, solar panels, and water tanks to provide a conducive learning environment for our students.
We also focus on professional development through capacity building and introducing interventions such as training in teaching pedagogies, and contemporary approaches in education such as Early Childhood Education (ECE) and blended learning. MF has established Early Childhood Education (ECE) centers to promote the early development of children's learning abilities. The organization hires additional teachers in schools based on community requirements. Furthermore, we have introduced E-Learning in adopted schools by providing smart TVs in classrooms equipped with internet connections and access to learning through videos developed by experts such as Sabaq Foundation, MUSE, and Noon Academy.
Over the years, Moawin Foundation has adopted 114 schools in different provinces of Pakistan, including Islamabad, Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh, and Gilgit Baltistan. Due to effective strategies, student enrollment has increased to more than 28,000 students as of December 2022.
