COSARAF Foundation announces strategic partnership with Dawood Foundation and Fahmida Begum Foundation

COSARF Foundation has announced a significant strategic partnership with The Dawood Foundation and the Fahmida Begum Foundation to support each other in various charitable initiatives undertaken in Pakistan. All three organizations share common goals such as promoting education without discrimination and establishing quality educational institutes.

The principal element of this agreement is to support the Fahmida Manzil Centre, an educational project delivered by the Fahmida Begum Foundation, through Dawood Public School in Karachi. Dawood Public School will support the project by:

• Assisting in curriculum development
• Conducting teacher training and support programs
• Assisting in developing systems and processes for the project
• Assisting in teacher recruitment
• Providing support and supervision in school management.
• Advising on building re-designing and renovations
• Sending selected students from Fahmida Manzil project to Dawood Public School

In addition, the partnership will cover collaboration on:

• Advice regarding Special Educational Needs provision for students at Dawood Public School
• Other projects run or supported by any of the parties where it is agreed collaboration would be beneficial

The trustees have ambitious expectations for the Foundation’s support of the Fahmida Manzil Centre in Karachi. Partnering with such an impressive organisation as the Dawood Foundation and Dawood Public School to help deliver on those ambitions is a real boost to helping us support some of the most deserving young people in Karachi and beyond. We very much look forward to working together to deliver this partnership, enabling all three charities to deliver more than they could ever do alone.
