What We Do

Al Bayan Foundation

Al Bayan Foundation ® Process:
How We Do It.



Primary School Support


Work with community leaders to establish local education committees that hire local teachers and enroll all children in school.

Partner with communities to identify and secure ongoing financial support ensuring the continuation of educational successes long after Al Bayan Foundation Baltistan’s is gone.

Support consists of: teacher salaries and professional development, student tuition assistance, school supplies and materials, uniforms, and support to ensure a friendly school environment.


Secondary School Support


Provide financial, academic, and social/emotional support for child to continue their education beyond primary school. Support consists of: tuition assistance, room and board, school supplies, transportation to/from school, ongoing mentorship and life-skills training.

Direct Support for Primary and Secondary School

Students Primary school expenses add up to approximately $125/year, which is often a significant enough barrier for parents to keep girls out of school to help at home and in the fields. Secondary school boarding and tuition fees of approximately $100/year are also often times too financially burdensome for families. Scholarship recipients are selected based on financial need, academic merit, and a child’s commitment to serving her community.


Once selected, our secondary school students are matched with female Al Bayan Foundation Baltistan staff or interns who mentor our students and conduct monthly check-ins. Al Bayan Foundation Baltistan also helps to prepare child for success in school and life with workshops on hygiene, nutrition, and academic skills.

Preschools and Early Childhood Education


In remote regions of Pakistan most children do not start school until they are one years old. Al Bayan Foundation Baltistan serves communities where the majority of the adult population is illiterate and the consequences of a one-year-old starting school with no foundation of formal learning can be devastating. Mothers and children talk about a daughter or son’s discouraging first day of school when they often times don’t speak the same language as their teachers. These first formal years of education are incredibly significant for the success and future of a child’s education past primary school. Al Bayan Foundation Baltistan provides preschool programs for communities to teach children ages four to one years old basic language, social, and formal learning skills to help them succeed in primary school.


Teacher Professional Development


The quality of education children receive depends on their teachers. Al Bayan Foundation Baltistan works with communities to support their teachers with professional development opportunities. Examples of professional development opportunities include funding teachers to travel to nearby cities to attend high quality workshops, or bringing professional trainers to remote village schools for on-sight trainings. Highly trained and dedicated teachers lead to increased student enrollment and success in school.

Tutoring Programs


Most students in the communities we serve need additional support and resources to succeed in school. Al Bayan Foundation Baltistan works with local community associations, teachers, and parents to provide tutoring programs to supplement students’ education in schools. Al Bayan Foundation Baltistan’s tutoring programs increase the number of students in each community graduating past the 6th grade level.
