ECD and E-Learning
Early childhood education lays the foundation for children. Its importance cannot be denied in the world of today. Investment in the early education of our children has many advantages that unfold themselves in due course. Children’s environment has a very powerful impact on the rest of their lives therefore, MF considers ECD and its applications significant. In Islamabad, ECD is initiated in IMSG Farash Town Phase II (I-V). Al Similarly, Tablet based E-learning has been initiated in two schools in Islamabad i.e., IMSG Alipur Farash (I-V) and IMSG Tamma (I-V) in collaboration with TTWF.

Contaminated and unhealthy drinking water leads to many diseases. Clean healthy water is an essential ingredient for a healthy human life. Moawin Foundation has provided clean drinking facilities including the water filtration system and water coolers in all its adopted schools in Islamabad as well.
