Sponsoring a child with Mashal Trust is a rewarding way to help change their life and future.
About Us

1Mashal Trust was established in April 2010 to provide education for those in need and particularly for underprivileged children. We are a non-political, non-sectarian and non-governmental charity organisation.

Our philosophy can be summed up in one word: Humanism. Serving humanity – irrespective of colour, race, language, nationality, gender, sect or religion – is something we follow passionately. We aim to provide education to create awareness hence eradicating human suffering, poverty and disease within every afflicted community. Unfortunately in the areas where we work, there are no suitable education facilities available for children as only expensive private institutions provide education that is affordable to a few households. These underprivileged children usually end up in bad company in the young age and also remain illiterate. Few of them fall into the hands of criminals as their parents are busy earning their livelihood. Talking to their parents it was realised that they cannot afford education and moreover do not understand the importance of it either.

2We have set up the first school as initial pilot project in a rented accommodation in Tariq Block, Garden Town, Lahore in April 2010. Response was over whelming and it attracted a large number of children for admission on the first day.

It has been five years now since the school has started. there are more 150 students now. Free education, books, school uniform and daily snack is provided to all the children attending the school.

We moved into new premises that was bought with a single generous donation of £ 72,000. That has helped us start full time primary school with 6 classes and also add vocational training programme our of school hours for young ladies. There still remains a huge demand to expand the existing facility as we don’t have any room to expand further.

We are now planning to buy another facility and estimate of the set up is around £ 100,000. In addition to raise funds, we are looking to get a team of volunteers together to run this set up. Most of our volunteers will work without any salary and remuneration that helps us keep the costs down.
