Al-Mashal Welfare Foundation is a registered organization providing quality education to the underprivileged and poverty stricken children of Saddar, Lahore. Established by Zainab Junaid Khan in August 2004, the school has come a long way.
She started by teaching her maid’s children in her own home; soon other children of the locality started coming in too. The number increased quickly and when she could not accommodate them in her home she rented two rooms, but outgrew that within a year and is now in a six room 3-storey rented building with 185 students.
She has eleven teachers, three vocational training teachers, a computer teacher,some volunteer teachers, a Qari Sahab and a cook, and a driver.
