Story of Al Mashal

The journey of Al Mashal has been an arduous but nonetheless a fruitful one. It has reached the point where all the efforts have paid off. But the journey still continues.

From one room building to various small rented buildings it has finally reached its pinnacle of achievement by owning and building its own premises.

A Brief overview of our Donors and Supporters:
The construction of our new building premises could not have been possible without our foreign supporters.

We are especially very thankful to Robatec Switzerland and Italy for their help. They came forward with their help and support when they were informed about our project of a new school premises. With their generous donations Al Mashal’s new school building project started off.

We were further supported by our donors from Glasgow from time to time. ‘Sisters in Deen’ gave their dedicated teacher who is supporting her tuition fee with the salary she receives from the school. She has also enrolled in bachelor’s degree from Punjab University.

Teacher Training at Al-Mashal Welfare Foundation

On a mission to make learning more forward-looking and engaging for every child, with developing new school wide approaches to prepare their students to be successful—in school and beyond their small, rural community. In response, the Al Mashal Welfare Foundation School established an International Montessori Early Years curriculum in the School, Teaching Young children through hands on activities.

Montessori Education: The authentic Montessori Method for early childhood education is like no other approach out there. Those familiar with conventional teaching methods and school environments will discover a truly unique and different experience in a Montessori classroom. Key approaches of Montessori induced activities brought about many positive changes in children such as:

Improvement in Key Developmental Stages.
Encourages Cooperative Play.
Learning Is Child-Centered.
Children Naturally Learn Self-Discipline,order,focus
Teachers Facilitate the Learning Experience.
Learning Method Inspires Creativity and love to learn

Extensive training—comparable to graduate school coursework—is necessary as the Montessori curriculum challenges educators to rethink fundamental classroom dynamics, right down to the roles of teacher and student. Instead of delivering whole-class lessons, teachers prepare individualized work plans for every child every week, and circulate around the room during class time to help and observe students individually.

We firmly believe that a good home environment is the foundation of a child’s upright and noble character and these weekly Quranic teachings are a stepping stone of inclusive teaching for the mothers and their children. May Allah help us succeed in our endeavours to achieve this noble cause.
