We are renovating our IT Labs in the Girls College
Alhamdulillah Zia Ul Ummah Foundation has always valued the importance of educating girls in both Islamic and secular education. This prepares them for their influential roles in the future.
As part of our aim to educate girls in Pakistan, we are appealing to renovate and equip our IT lab in the girls college.
The benefits of having IT skills go far beyond the information technology industry. Strong technical skills in IT are essential in today’s changing world and by learning these skills, they will improve both their personal and professional life.
This essential lab in our purpose build girls college will provide a great boost to the educational needs of female students from across Pakistan and help them to get the education they deserve.
£40,000 is needed for equipment & improvements
How will this project make a difference?
The expanded facilities will mean we can provide over 1,000 female students with a
Islam and the importance of female education
A great role model for the education of women is Aisha, the mother of the believers. She was one of the greatest scholars of Islam among the early Muslims. The learned companions of the Prophet would go to her for answers and advice.
In fact, there is a long Islamic tradition to educate women and this is mainly because they are the future mothers who pass on the learnings to children. The tarbiyah a child receives from the mother in the formative year affects the child for the rest of their lives.
The Prophet would teach his daughters about Islam and the attributes of Allah.
Abdul Hameed reported: His mother served some of the daughters of the Prophet and she told him the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, would teach his daughter.
With better educated mothers, we can ensure a better ummah.
Support our work
We’ve always championed girls’ education in Pakistan, which is why we have a dedicated programme that supports girls at our schools.
Many of our female graduates go on to become academics, some set up their own schools, and others come back to work for us as headteachers at our institutes.
We’re making a real difference to girls across Pakistan, but it’s only with your continued support that we’ll be able to give them the high-quality education they need.
Join us and support our work to ensure girls have the necessary skills for the future.
A former student: Kosar Maqbool
“I belong to a middle class family and lost my father when I was just 14 years old. My mother struggled to give me primary and secondary education but could not afford to send me to a college. I wanted to study to stand on my feet to support my mother and ease her pain but time was too difficult and I lost my hope. However, today I am a successful teacher and support my family because the help I received from ZUF Institution (DMG Bhera Girls College).
There are thousands of girls out there who has similar story to mine but ZUF can only help handful girls unless they expand.
Today, the institution needs your support, so they can help more girls like me and support them to stand on their feet. If I was not able to attend the institution, I would be uneducated and suffering in poverty, but DMG has given me feet to stand on and helped me to live my life as a good daughter, sister, wife and mother.
I pray for success of ZUF for their hard work and sincere support they provide to children around Pakistan.”
