Pehli Kiran Schools (PKS) takes children off the street and puts them in school. Over 10,000 children have been enrolled since its first school opened in 1995, with a track record of 90% pass rate on government board exams. PKS has changed mindsets and transformed communities in recognizing the value of education.
Mentioned in the Holy Quran, Prophet Ibrahim (as) had a vision that he offered his son Isma'eel (as) in sacrifice to Allah (SWT). When he shared this dream with his son, Isma'eel (as) said: "O my father! Do as you are commanded: you will find me, if Allah so wills, of the patient ones.’’ When he carried out the commandment, Allah (SWT) replaced Isma’eel (as) with a lamb.
To remember his bravery and to follow the piety and example of one of the greatest men of Islam, Qurbani is considered a highly rewardable act of worship as explained by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
The true message of Eid-al-Adha is that along with Sacrificing an animal we must develop a spirit of sacrifice in our self so that whenever Humanity needs help we all must come forward and help mankind. This is the true message of Qurbani.
“So that they may avail benefits for themselves, and invoke the Name of Allah as well (whilst slaughtering) over the cattle which Allah has provided for them (for sacrifice), during the appointed days. Then eat them yourselves and feed the distressed and the needy.” (Al-Haj 22/28)
DONATION APPEAL FOR PEHLI KIRAN SCHOOLS Pehli Kiran Schools, a Project of the JAQ Education Trust, is providing quality education and an exciting learning experience to over 2,800+ deserving, underprivileged children from the most deprived, unserved communities in Pakistan.
It provides free education to the deserving children living in slums with the help of donations received from donors across the world. There are thousands of children who are in dire need of your donations and support.
This Eid-al-Adha, you can contribute to the welfare of children by allowing them to enjoy Eid celebrations.
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.
