Works in Progress
Presently, the Centre mainly provides the poor students with the school books, uniform and other necessary items. For last ten years the Centre has adopted some local poor children and is taking care of their academic needs. Tuition fee along with other charges of these students are wholly paid by the Centre. There is a regular check from the Foundation to ensure the proper use of these funds. Furthermore, the students are also given an additional copy of the syllabus (specially designed for these children, comprised of selected portions from the Qur’an, ‘Aqidah and other Islamic Sciences) which they are supposed to study at home or at a local Madrasah. After proper examination and evaluation of the student, the scholarship is either continued for a year further or discontinued if the examiners are not satisfied.
