Vocational Training Institute

Moawin Foundation prioritizes empowerment and gender equality by providing both education and income-generating skills to youth. Vocational training is crucial for skill development, enabling students to start jobs or businesses. Collaborating with the Government of Punjab, Moawin has established Vocational Training Institutes (VTIs) in Mahmunwali and Qila Mian Singh, Punjab. These VTIs offer training in trades such as beautician, dress-making, and motorcycle mechanic, with 1,338 students graduated so far. Furthermore, Moawin, in partnership with Akhuwat, provides interest-free loans to 187 graduates from its VTIs to facilitate their self-sustainability.


Moawin Foundation (MF) entered into an MoU with Siddiq Shafi (Pvt) Ltd on January 1, 2021, to establish a Rozgar Centre for stitching shoes in the VTI adopted by MF in Mahmunwali Village, District Sheikhupura. The female diploma holders from the VTI with requisite skills were employed in this initiative. The training was provided to the students free of cost and now they are earning per piece wages. All expenses on machinery & training were provided by Siddiq Shafi (Pvt) Ltd.

Stitching Centre

Moawin Foundation (MF) in collaboration with Bismillah Textiles Limited, Faisalabad started the cutting and packing of the raw material. This initiative also provided employment opportunities to female VTI students. To facilitate this initiative, MF constructed a lab with a store and washroom in the VTI located in Mahmunwali, Sheikhupura. These initiatives helped the local community and the female students earn a living.

Solar Panels

The schools are located in the remote rural areas of District Sheikhupura, Punjab. The provision of electricity to these areas is intermittent. Keeping in view the increase in enrollment in every academic session, the demand of infrastructure development is being addressed by Moawin Foundation through the construction of new classrooms and repair and maintenance of these schools. Furthermore, ECE and E-Learning setups are also being established along with Electric Water Coolers in these schools. Moawin Foundation has installed Solar Panels in all the Moawin adopted seven schools in UC Tibbi Hamboo.

Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE)

Investing in early childhood education is vital for poverty eradication, as it improves children’s early learning, enhances maternal and child health, empowers women, and contributes to poverty elimination. Moawin Foundation recognizes the significance of Early Childhood Care & Education (ECCE) for a child’s future and has established ECCE centers in various government schools. These centers provide necessary information and communication materials and conduct regular training sessions and workshops, especially targeting mothers, to emphasize the importance of ECCE to the community.


Moawin believes that our children should be on par with the world and therefore, E-learning is being promoted in Moawin-adopted schools. This can be achieved through the spread of high-quality, curriculum-aligned, and engaging digital lessons, which improve student engagement and knowledge retention. MF has signed an MoU with SABAQ for the development of digital material for all provinces. E-learning setups have been established in all the seven adopted schools in UC Tibi Hamboo. The initiative will be implemented in all the Moawin adopted schools in district Sheikhupura.

Construction and Maintenance of Classrooms

Upgrading the infrastructure is also of importance. Moawin has worked readily to construct and repair classrooms where needed. More than 24 classrooms have been constructed in the Moawin adopted schools. Additionally, more than 54 classrooms have been refurbished and repaired.
