Al-Mudassar Trust was founded as a social welfare organization to cater to the ever-growing needs of children with special needs living in ‘rural’ areas of Pakistan. It provides totally free education and health services to children with special needs living in and around Tehsil Kharian, Pakistan
From humble beginnings in 1999, the first part of the dream was fulfilled when the doors were opened for just 8 deaf children at Al-Mudassar but today the number has grown to more than 450 children with various special needs. In 2009, the school shifted from the old rented building to the state of the art building designed by French architect and funded entirely by family and close friends of Chairman and founder of Al-Mudassae Trust “Syed Mudassar Shah”. Today, Al-Mudassar Trust is situated near village Baharwal, Tehsil Kharian, with an area of several hectares. The campus occupies 93,000 square feet of the covered area that includes classrooms equipped with computers, modern audio testing, Lego laboratories library, resource centre, mosque, playgrounds and hostels for boys and girls. The grounds reflect an amazing blend of beautiful creativity and modern design inspired by the French painter, Claude Monet.
