HOPE's Three Formal Schools
in Pakistan:

Our Accomplishments >

HOPE Zia Colony School

HOPE’s formal school in Zia Colony began humbly with only 60 students studying up to fifth grade.  Classes were held in four classrooms adjacent to the HOPE Zia Colony Hospital.  In 2002, the Embassy of Japan generously sponsored construction of a new school building which supported students up to high school levels.  Today, 800 students are enrolled in HOPE’s Zia Colony school.  Most of these students come from extremely poor backgrounds; tuition and books are free of charge, or a nominal amount is taken from those who can afford it.  The curriculum at Zia Colony is well-rounded and students participate in sports, art competitions, and field trips. Students are passing their high school board exams with flying colors.

HOPE Formal School Muzaffargarh (Punjab)

Our Accomplishments >

HOPE Muzaffargarh School

HOPE’s formal school in Muzaffargarh caters to a rural population about 25 miles from Multan City.  HOPE established a school here in 2011 because there were few educational facilities in the area.  There is a ratio of 70/30 ratio of girls to boys in this school; the students are children of farmers and laborers and come from extreme poverty.  Many students are orphans.  Today, there are 600 students and classes are held until eighth grade.  A well-rounded curriculum is in place which includes extracurricular activities and outdoor sports.  

For years, HOPE’s formal school in Muzaffargarh was operating in a rented building; in 2018, the Japan Embassy sponsored construction of a new school which is currently underway. 

HOPE Formal School Thatta

HOPE Thatta School

HOPE’s Formal School in Thatta had a humble beginning adjacent to the HOPE hospital (similar to the formal school in Zia Colony).  Initially, there were only 60 students in four classrooms up till fifth grade and a limited number of teachers.  In 2006, three individual philanthropists pooled together to support construction of a large school building.  Today, HOPE’s Formal School in Thatta supports 600 students until high school.  Most of the students come from impoverished backgrounds and are the children of farmers and laborers.
