2022 Zakaat - Thaakat Foundation

2022 Thaakat Zakaat Campaign

Our DREAMS schools in Karachi, Pakistan continue to grow with your help. Details Below.


More than 700 million people still live in extreme poverty today, struggling to fulfil the most basic of their needs. Donate today to provide meals, clean water, medical care and an education for the poor and marginalized communities of Pakistan. 100% of your donation goes to those in need.

We launched our educational work in Jam Chakro village, Karachi Pakistan in 2011. By 2012, we had built a brand new 17-unit classroom building in the trenches of the city’s largest landfill. We’ve expanded beyond this facility and now support three schools, a college, medical facility, women’s skills training center and a college. We have a total student body of 1,266 students and 66 staff members. Our campuses have clean water, public restrooms, Montessori style learning facilities, daily meals, computer labs, playgrounds and libraries. Our school presents them with the opportunities they deserve as children.

Monthly costs to run these facilities come in at $20,000, annually that’s $240,000 a year just to keep the lights on. During this time of giving, we need you.

Your tax-deductible gift will help us manage the below facilities:

  • Campus 3(main campus): Nursery – 10th grade, 620 students (430 Male/ 190 Female), 30 Staff
  • Campus 2: Nursery – 5th grade, 280 students (160 Male/ 90 Female), 15 Staff
