Schools, Training and Youth development are our goals when trying to provide education for every child.
“Of course, I would like to go to school, but how can I? Every morning, I have to help my mother with the preparation and selling of chapatis; I have to do that, because otherwise, we would not have enough to eat.”
This is the answer of a little girl in one of the crowded streets in Northern Pakistan, when asked why she did not attend school, she replied fully conscious of the responsibility she assumes for her family, at the age of 9 years.

There are over 1 billion illiterate adults around the world today.
To be illiterate in modern times is to live in a hostile and confusing world. Millions of boys and girls around the world are still being left out. In the developing world, children from the poorest households are four times less likely to attend a school than those from the richest. 115 million children worldwide of primary school age aren’t enrolled in any kind of school program at all.
Education should be a right for every child – not just those who live in a developed country, or those who come from wealthier families. In most developing countries, public school is not free. The costs of books, uniforms, and teachers’ salaries are borne by the students’ families.
Illiteracy is highest amongst females. In more than 20 developing countries, illiteracy rates amongst women exceed 70%. An integral part of our development program is to promote self-sufficiency and independence via education and training.
SMT believes, for a community to be able to become independent it requires good foundations; therefore, good academic education will produce professionals. These professionals will become assets for tomorrow.
In view of this, SMT has started providing assistance to upgrade current schools in the given areas of NWFP, by providing financial funding, books and other educational material to the institutions.
We currently sponsor and support 76 schools in Pakistan, Kashmir and West Africa, with a total number of more than 5000 students, some residents whilst others just attending school during normal school hours. The Schools provide the students with secular education as well as Islamic education.
We understand that in order to move along with this ever-changing society it is vital to keep up with information and technology. With this in mind, we have set up computer centres, which provide students and local residents access to regular computer training. We provide monthly financial help and support to a Primary School in Marcory, Abidjan, West Africa.
In November 2017 we provided 101 school benches to the school and this school provides education to over 200 poor children.

those who prepare for it today” Malcolm X
