The very seed of Zahra Foundation lies in the belief that it is as important to give as it is to receive. Zahra Foundation’s philosophy also envisioned the fact that education is the most important tool in poverty eradication and empowering the poor and downtrodden and everything that is a hindrance in the way of education and empowerment needs to be addressed and solved.
Zahra Foundation is a humble yet noble initiative started by two College best friends, Mohammad Saif and Javed in the year 2014. Around 2016-2017 it was then joined by Shaghil Iqbal, Qasim Khan, Fahad Masood Farooqi, Saif Ahmed, Venkatesh Khatri and other friends.
In a course of five years it has seen tremendous growth. And from the initial 20 children it had in 2014, the number has grown to 500 children enrolled in Zahra Educational centre-I by the year 2020.
Team Zahra has selflessly been working tirelessly for the last five years to provide free education support to the underprivileged children living in the slums of Batla House, Okhla, New Delhi. In the last five years, team Zahra has provided free education support to about 500 children who hail from the socially and economically marginalized background. All the children come from families where
parent’s major concern is to get two-time meal rather than thinking of education for their wards. Densely populated areas, like the slums where these kids live have no resources even for basic sustenance. Conditions are so poor and supply so scarce that students and parents barely have the motivation to even think of education. In addition to this, watching their parents struggling for money and living the life of daily struggle have made these kids more interested in earning at the earliest rather than giving time and attention towards education.
Zahra Foundation has been working tirelessly for the last four years to provide free education assistance to the underprivileged children living in the slums of New Delhi. Now we are committed to expand our services in various other fields and serve the society selflessly, in every possible capacity.
Become a part of our family. Together, we
can save many lives and stop this hunger.
