Care About Us


Education lies at the heart of WAWA’s mission. Recognizing the transformative power of knowledge, WAWA has tirelessly worked to improve access to quality education in the most remote areas. Through the Zindawar School System, over 1,500 children now receive an education that was once beyond our reach. The organization has also supported more than 1100 students, including 120 women, in pursuing secondary and higher education in various institutions and universities across Pakistan. Through the Talent Hunt Scholarships, we have enrolled more than 150 students in different schools and cadet colleges. More than 300 medical and engineering students have received financial support to continue their education.


Muna Nikka Public School and College (MNPS) which was established in 1981 as a semi government school, is a success story of WAWA. With the support from WAWA, the school is currently educating more than 700 students. Similarly, WAWA has adopted four dysfunctional government schools and made them operational with continued financial aid, infrastructure development, teachers and management training.


Our efforts extend beyond just providing education. WAWA continually invests in teacher training, ensuring that educators in neglected areas have access to advanced learning opportunities. We organize awareness walks, seminars and workshop to sensitize communities on topics related to importance of education.

Our Education Initiatives

Ummah Children Academy (UCA)

Ummah Children Academy (UCA) was founded in 2011 in a rented building, in Wana Lower South Waziristan, with the goal of providing quality free education to children affected by war. In 2017, thanks to the generosity of the local community and the efforts of local elders, UCA moved to its own facility, constructed through community funding and self-help initiatives. This move marked a significant milestone in the academy's journey, enabling it to expand its services and accommodate more students in need

WAWA Scholarships Program

WAWA regularly awards scholarships to support talented and deserving students. The program conducts tests and successful students are supported in paying their tuition fee of renowned educational institutes of the country. WAWA scholarship programs are as follows:

  • WAWA Merit Scholarship for Metric Students.
  • WAWA Scholarship for Class 5 to Class 8 students.
  • Scholarship for Medical and Engineering students

Revival of dysfunctional government schools

Government schools in rural areas often suffer from neglect, resulting in inadequate facilities and resources. This situation leads to low student enrollment and, in many cases, the eventual dysfunction of the schools. Recognizing the urgent need for intervention, WAWA has undertaken the challenge of rehabilitating four government high schools in Wana. This initiative aims to revitalize these educational institutions, providing them with the necessary resources and support to function effectively and serve their communities.

Zindawar Schools System (ZSS)

In rural areas where government schools are not available, WAWA has stepped in to fulfill the educational needs by establishing six Zindawar schools. These schools operate on a no-profit no-loss basis, ensuring that education remains accessible and affordable for all. WAWA's commitment to education equity is evident in its policy of providing free education or charging very low fees from deserving students, ensuring that financial barriers do not impede access to quality education.

WAWA Mass Enrolment Campaign

This campaign is dedicated to ensuring that every child has access to education. To promote the enrolment of out-of-school children, WAWA conducts community walks, workshops, seminars, and community mobilisation sessions. These activities see extensive participation from students, teachers, local and district administration representatives, the education department, and community elders. The collective effort underscores a communitywide commitment to education, striving to ensure that no child in Wana is deprived of quality education. Through this campaign, WAWA aims to foster an inclusive educational environment where every child has the opportunity to learn and thrive.

WAWA Teacher Training Program

WAWA has trained hundreds of Teachers from Wana on effective teaching methodology skills. With the support of the Aga Khan University Institute for Educational Development (AKU-IED/PDCN), the Paulla Bass Institute of Professional Development Modernage, and other renowned institutions, WAWA has organized comprehensive teacher training sessions in Abbottabad and Wana. Collaborations with the Professional Development Centre (PDCN) in Gilgit Baltistan and the Tameer Watan Education System have further enhanced the quality and reach of these training programs.
