We Address The Educational Needs of Underprivileged Children in Pakistan For A Promising Future.

  • PKS targets the bottom 5 percent of children in poverty.

  • PKS emphasizes character building and instilling values in its educational approach and philosophy, both curricular and co-curricular programs.

  • PKS considers the ‘whole child’ – basic hygiene, nutrition, counseling and self-care are taught along-side mainstream Montessori instruction.

  • PKS aims to achieve these objectives by deploying its unique education model: ‘The school that comes to you and stays with you’.

Our Schools System

'Pehli Kiran' means 'the first ray of light'. Our school system is a network of eight community schools which provide quality primary education to

2800+ deserving children

PKS serves the unserved and forgotten children of Pakistan’s neglected slums.

We provide schooling access to the most difficult to reach, out-of-school, destitute children. PKS uses an innovative approach by taking schools to the ‘katchi Abadi’ (urban slum) communities, and moving with them when they are evicted by local authorities. PKS establishes mobile school sheds in Katchi Abadis (slum areas) of Islamabad in response to the needs of these transient, nomadic communities. Through individual philanthropy and crowdfunding, we raise funds to give quality education, skills, and opportunities to these needy children, who rightfully deserve the chance of a better tomorrow.

Take school to the Community
to ensure access and retention and provide kids with opportunities to learn and grow.
Mobile Infrastructure that moves
with the Community when evicted - “the school that stays with you” and prevents dropouts.
High-quality education model, using
Montessori approach, embraces diverse styles and pathways to learning, and realizes that every kid's initial learning venture is unique.
