Über uns

READ Foundation was established in 1994 as a not-for-profit organization to address the dire need for education and literacy in Pakistan. Pakistan is facing an educational crisis with more than 25 million children not being able to avail their constitutional right to a quality education. Education is the only tool which can enable the country to develop and progress amongst the community of nations. Realizing this problem, READ Foundation´s founders envisaged building a school system to serve the marginalized communities and underprivileged families.

Our Mission is helping society through quality-oriented, value-based and purposeful education and capacity building

Our objectives:

• Low cost or free education: To impart a quality education on a very low or no-cost basis to every student that enrolls in any of the READ Foundation´s education facilities.
• Environment friendly education facilities: To establish and run environment friendly education facilities through resource mobilization, networking and advocacy.
• Holistic learning: To provide an enabling environment conducive to nurturing and nourishing the natural gifts, aptitudes and abilities of all students for a lifelong learning and education through innovative curriculum and teaching methodologies.
