It is gratifying to see you visiting ZamungKor through our website
I am honored to work as Director, Model Institute State Children ZamungKor.
It is the initiative of KP Government to provide a safety net to the most vulnerable and disenfranchised children of the province. It is the first of its kind in Pakistan, an autonomous child protection institute, under the auspices of Social Welfare, Special Education and Women Empowerment Department, administered by Institute Management Committee (IMC), since July 1, 2016.
ZamungKor is a catalyst and midway house, where state children are housed, counseled, trained and educated by professionals to become engaged citizens and leaders of tomorrow. The institute has been set up with an aim to accommodate street children to make them competitive citizens and useful human beings by providing them state of the art facilities. Our academic and extracurricular programs are designed to inculcate leadership, innovative spirit, team work, knowledge and global perspective into the students. We put a lot of emphasis on discipline and conduct of students. The kind of exposure we try to provide here not just train students to compete with each other but also make them ready to face global challenges.
As everyone knows the institute has already started working to achieve its goal, but that is just the tip of the iceberg compared to the huge goals we have set. To create an equitable and conducive environment for the destitute and vulnerable children from the most socially and economically challenged segment of society, and afford these State Children equal opportunities to excel with their God-endowed potentials is the ultimate goal. It is indeed a challenge to establish a state-of-the-art institution for rehabilitation, education and enfranchising of State Children to become responsible citizens. We achieve our objectives by providing them shelter, apparel and other personal effects, boarding, lodging and health care facilities, free books and quality education, psychosocial support, opportunities for co curricular and extracurricular activities. The institutes own campus on a vast pristine land, on Charsadda Road, is fast getting ready to be utilized with full capacity. It has increased its students’ strength from a meager 15 students in 2016 to over 270 students today and which is likely to increase to 400 students by the end of session 2019-20.
We have a fascinating vision for the overall growth and development of the institute. Since the inception of this great institution, it was the aim to provide quality education and develop a competitive environment where children are socially sensitive and are committed to excellence. In accordance with this aim, we are trying to have a set of faculty members who play their role in achieving academic excellence as well as excellence in value education and behavior improvement. Our academic and hostel staff possess a passion for teaching and character building and has always been committed to support and facilitate every single student. ZamungKor possesses a professional classroom environment with the latest teaching aids, which provides students an opportunity to work closely with their instructors. This commitment to excellence in education is not limited to the classroom but is visible in all activities of the institute. The activities in ZamungKor range from a multiple of competitions to academic and sports events.
It is our focus to become a leader among the institutes established for accommodating vulnerable and destitute children in the country. We have made a stunning beginning yet there is a long way to go but I am sure, with the active cooperation of all our stakeholders, students, faculty, collaborators, governmental organizations, media and public at large, we will be able to fulfill our dreams. I am excited to take on the challenge of finding new ways to make this great institute even better. In particular, I would like to focus on knowledge transfer through enhancing collaboration and promoting education.
Seeing is believing. And believing is being at this institution!
I am confident that our students will bring a good name not only for this institution, but for the family and Pakistan too.
May Allah give us the vision and strength to fulfill this noble task and may all our efforts lead to the success of our students.
