Support Hidaya Schools
Due to corruption, mismanagement, and poverty, schools in economically depressed areas of under-developed countries are in a deplorable state. In rural areas of Pakistan, for example, many government schools have become abandoned buildings, either empty or used by villagers to store animals and farming supplies. This results in generations of illiterate people and no schools to educate future generations.
What Does Hidaya Do?
In response to these issues, Hidaya opens schools in rural areas and provides students with free education. Currently, Hidaya operates 35 schools with over 4,000 K-8 students.
Below is the procedure Hidaya follows when opening a new school:
- Hidaya identifies villages where there are no schools or schools have been shut down.
- After community meetings, Hidaya hires local teachers (those residing within a couple of kilometers) and trains them in theoretical curriculum and classroom management.
- Hidaya provides all classrooms needs, such as fans, lights, and mats for floor seating.
- Hidaya provides tuition-free education to students, as well as textbooks, notebooks, and other school supplies.
- To attract students and to avoid drop-out, Hidaya supports families whose children attend our schools through our other projects, such as One Million Meals and Clean Drinking Water. Students must regularly attend classes in order to receive support.
- Hidaya sponsors extracurricular activities such as tree plantation via the One Million Trees project to provide a well-rounded education.
It costs about $400 to run a classroom of approximately 40 students for each month.
