Mingora: Answering the prayers of little broken hearts, Khpal Kor Foundation began its good work 16 years ago. Rebuilding the lives of orphans in Swat, Khpal Kor, which means ‘our home’, provides children the kindness, support and wisdom of a good parent.
The facility that started with five orphans and a room has turned into a highly sought after boarding school with 1600 students, 370 of which have been orphaned. The school provides for its orphaned students through revenues generated by tuition fees; even setting aside Rs 500 a month in each child’s savings account, access of which is granted to them on graduation.
“This school system was designed to keep orphaned children out of the hands of predators with political agendas” says Mohammad Ali, director of Khpal Kor Foundation, “it cares for them and educates them, preparing them in every way to be well-rounded independent human beings who can benefit this nation.”
Khpal Kor Foundation is a safe haven for the future of Pakistan. Currently, they are working towards setting up on a larger scale with Khpal Kor Model Village.
Just by feeling at home the quality of life improved for these orphans. If we all made the effort to make each other feel at home in Pakistan, think of the unity it would create.
