I am honored to serve as the Director of Model Institute for State Children (ZamungKor).
It is the initiative of KP Government established 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 Institution under the auspices of Social Welfare, Special Education & Women Empowerment Department, administered by Institute Management Committee (IMC) since July 1, 2016.
ZamungKor is a catalyst and a midway house, where State Children with limited options 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 and to provide them state of the art facilities to make them competitive citizens and useful human beings. Our academic and extracurricular programs are designed to impart knowledge, leadership, innovative spirit, team work and global perspective into the students. . We put lot of emphasis on discipline and conduct of the student 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 you know the institute has already started working to achieve its goal, but that is just the tip of the iceberg compared to the huge goal we have planned. 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-opportunity to excel with their God-endowed potential is the ultimate aim. 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 objective by providing them shelter, apparel and other personal effects, boarding, lodging and healthcare facilities, free books and quality education, psycho-social support, opportunities for co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
The institute’s own campus on 100 canals pristine land, on Charsadda Road is fast getting ready to be utilized with full capacity. The institute has increased its student strength from a meager 15 students in 2016 to over 160students today which is likely to be increased to 400 by 2019 and ultimately 1000 students.
We have a fascinating vision for the overall growth and development of the institute.
