Hidaya is currently supporting over 6,000 students under the Spread Education project!
The spread of basic general education among poor, rural populations is one of Hidaya’s priorities. This project is divided among the following sub-projects, below - Please donate for these efforts, your donations will go a long way to build a bright future for the next generations in poor countries.
Support Poor Students
Hidaya Foundation provides partial or full assistance to poor students from primary school to university levels, who are not in a position to continue their education because of financial hardships. Areas of assistance include: admission fees, text books, tuition fees, exam fees, hostel fees, uniforms, backpacks, school supplies, stationery items, as well as a stipend which may range from $5 - $50 per month depending on local conditions and economic status of each student’s family. Please Donate.
Female Education Drop-out Prevention
History has proven that illiterate mothers will likely produce illiterate and ineffective members of societies. Alternatively, literate mothers will largely contribute to literate and effective societies. Hidaya strongly believes that women need to be properly educated as they are the future mothers of the next generation and therefore the most important building block of our societies.
In 2005, Hidaya’s team conducted a research in Shikarpur, Pakistan which ultimately proved that due to lack of schools and poverty, the literacy rate for all women was below 3%. Among female students, 75% never go to school, and only 10% who even begin their primary school are able to complete their studies, as most parents can’t afford even the essentials for survival, hence they decide to keep girls at home and, if at all even possible, they send only their sons to school.
Just $6 per month is enough to offer one student the opportunity to continue her education and bring a remarkable change to her life and in time, many such cases can bring change to the larger society. Please Donate.
Illiteracy is not only a concern for the young but also among adults. The true value of education throughout a family or community will be realized when the people who make up the community are educated themselves. Hidaya strives to teach adults basic education such as reading, writing, basic arithmetic, basic farming techniques and more. Adult students are able to attend fast-paced courses which give them an education level up to the 8th grade in just 6 months. Please Donate.
Employment opportunities can multiply for someone if they possess the ability to read and write in their native language as well as a foreign language. Hidaya intends to assist the poor by teaching them competency in their local language along with English. Future plans for expanding this project include teaching other foreign languages such as Arabic, Chinese, and Turkish. Please Donate.
Sports & Fitness Training
Hidaya is working towards organizing various youth sports leagues and competitions in poor & rural areas of Pakistan. There are many benefits of such activities such as fostering teamwork among young children and providing them with positive environments and good adult role models. Please Donate.
