Fighting poverty through education!

Zia Ul Ummah Foundation

Embarking on a unique journey, the Zia Ul Ummah Foundation is a charitable organisation with a strong focus on education. Our mission is to provide free education to disadvantaged children in Pakistan, firmly believing in the universal right of every child to receive a quality education, irrespective of their economic circumstances.

To ensure equal access to education, all our schools provide complimentary accommodation and meals, reflecting our unwavering dedication to ensuring that children from impoverished backgrounds have the educational opportunities they deserve.

We advocate for the inherent right of every child to an education. In addition to our primary school program, we have specialised initiatives supporting scholars, female students, and Qur’an students. Our holistic approach ensures that upon graduation, our students are not only prepared to lead lives grounded in Islamic values and principles but are also equipped to navigate the challenges of the contemporary world.

With almost a century of experience, our proven methods have yielded success. Our graduates, who now include respected lawyers, bankers, teachers, Islamic scholars, and international academics, proudly represent the Muslim community in Pakistan and beyond.
