ABC Children’s Aid Pakistan

ABC Children’s Aid Pakistan started in July 2005.  The leader is a Christian native Pakistani by the name Sharif A. Ditta.  Sharif has been involved with education his whole career but has now retired.  His sons built him a nice house for his retirement.  But, as soon as the house was ready, Sharif moved into a room with his son and changed the house into a local school.  Sharif comes from a poor village but was supported for education.  He graduated from University and all his children also.  The younger brother of Sharif did not get any education and his children neither.  Therefore Sharif understands well the importance of education and has a burning desire to help as many as possible to gain one.  This dream has become reality with the support of ABC Children’s Aid.

Currently (November 2009) ABC Children’s Aid Pakistan is operating 13 schools out of which 12 are day schools and 1 boarding school. Two of these schools are offering classes up to high school level and the other schools operate pre-schools, primary and elementary school levels. Total student strength of all of these schools is 2,815, out of which 512 students are in the boarding school.
