WHAD Educational Programmes

Farishte Hurf (Pre-School)

The Farishte Hurf (meaning Alphabet Angels) Foundation is laying the foundation for lifetime learning where fear, anxiety and violence disrupt the developing architecture of brain. The children are socially and actively prepared to help them quickly grasp concepts as they enter the mainstream education. WHAD understands that child development is highly correlated to gender development and gender empowerment. The commitment of this educational programmes is to reduce poverty and increasing the chances of success for all children, ensuring a healthy, cognitive, social and economic development of little children.

Little Angels (School)

"The Emerging Generation" running this regular Primary education is to reduce poverty and promote gender equality. This programme also ensures that education is a fundamental right and denying access to education increases vulnerability to abuse, exploitation and diseases. This programme aims at education for sustainable development.

Taare (Tuition)

The objective of running the Taare Tuition Centres is to control drop-outs from schools, create interest in education among children and to improve the innovative and analytical thinking ability in the future generation. The programme also aids in inculcating long term goal and vision-setting among the beneficiaries.

Helping Each-other Act Responsibly Together (HEART)

Young people are denied essential reproductive health information and services. These are considered by WHAD as denial of their basic human rights. The HEART programme was designed to bridge this gap in schools and educational foundations. HEART programme inculcates that sexual health is not just about morality, but is an issue of bodily integrity and well-being. The programme identifies adolescence as an age of opportunity more than one of vulnerability. In the past year, 635 adolescent children have benefited from seven educational institutions through this programme.
