Education and Literacy
The Ghori Trust donated funds to The Citizens Foundation (TCF) in 2009 for the establishment of a school and its running costs for three years. TCF is a non-profit organization that operates over 650 schools in Pakistan, providing subsidized education to 85,000 children. Located in Taiser Town, North Karachi, TCF Ghori Campus provides quality primary education to over 200 students who are managed by a teaching staff of 6 tutors.
The Ghori Trust has also donated funds to The Hunar Foundation (THF) for opening a vocational school to promote technical education. THF, accredited by City & Guilds (UK), aims to create a new cadre of skilled Pakistanis with internationally recognized technical qualifications that open up a world of opportunities for them. With the help of Matco, the Ghori Trust initiated its first ‘Apprenticeship Technical Training Program’ at Matco’s production facilities. The objective of this program was to provide young individuals with theoretical knowledge and practical skills of technical know-how, thereby improving their skill set and future employment opportunities. In 2015, 15 young men were paid a monthly stipend and inducted in a course, specially designed for teaching basic electrical knowledge, workshop practices, plant maintenance, and power generation.
