Abaseen Foundation Pakistan (AF PK) is supported by Abaseen Foundation United Kingdom (AF UK) to work in the fields of health, education, research and humanitarian relief. We have worked together since 2000 doing innovative and challenging one-off projects in marginalised communities and at the same time planning, designing and developing core projects in education and health. Our core projects include:
- Nahaqi Hospital – AF UK and AF PK managed this hospital in Charsadda for 15 years and when it successfully achieved financial sustainability AF handed this back to the Government.
- Noor Model School (NMS) for boys and girls. This primary school was established in 2009 in the Merra Baghbanam area for children whose families work on one of the brick kiln sites. Many of the children live in dire poverty and themselves are expected to work in the brick kilns from a very early age, being born into bonded labour.
- Baghbanan Health Centre (BHC) in District Peshawar. Established in 2010 in a building next to the Noor Model School to provide health care and health education for the local community.
- Mian Gul Model School (MGM). A school for girls from ages 12 to 16 located on the Rahim Education Complex in Shamshatoo in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA). Established in 2011 in order to provide education for girls who traditionally would not go to school beyond primary level. It is envisaged that this school will eventually provide general and vocational education up to college level.
- Brig Gulman Model School (BGM). A school for boys on the same Rahim Education Complex site as the MGM. Construction was started in 2017, and it is also envisaged that this will provide general and vocational education up to college level.
- BIZIFED A major project being led by the University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN) in conjunction with AF UK and AF PK, Khyber Medical University and Fauji Fertilizer company. The project is developing wheat strains that can be grown locally and provide a fortified source of zinc which is critical in brain development.
