Next five Years plan
As we all know, almost 22 million children in Pakistan are out of schools, most unable to attend schools because of poverty and lack of basic education facilities. SAF has taken the “SAF School” initiative to get these out of school, underprivileged children back to schools to secure the future of our nation. SAF plans to spread the “SAF Schools” network all over Pakistan in the next five years, to support and uplift the poor and underprivileged communities through this education based initiative.
