The Fauji Foundation, one of largest energy conglomerates and welfare organizations in Pakistan, is set to open a new model school in Phalia, Mandi Bahauddin this year for the education of the children of ex-servicemen and civilians.
This was stated by Fauji Foundation Model School Mandi Bahauddin Principal Maj (r) Mirza Azmat Baig. He said many retired soldiers belonged to Tehsil Phalia who could not send their children to Mandi Bahauddin, being far away from their villages.
The company was established in order to provide employment and welfare benefits to Pakistani ex-military personnel and their dependents. It is run by former officers of Pakistani Armed Forces.
Fauji Foundation (FF) authorities, on their demand, will start the model school with the facility of playgroup section. He further briefed that it was also being considered to upgrade Mandi Bahauddin Model School to an intermediate college where separate blocks for boys and girls would be arranged.
He said FF was committed to providing top standard facilities of education all over the country from Karachi to Gilgit for the education of wards of ex-servicemen and civilians alike. He said suitable accommodation for the new school is being arranged in Phalia and admission will be opened for playgroup level to 10th class. Teaching and administrative staff is being hired, he further said.
In October last year, the Fauji Foundation had sought to form a joint venture with the Quetta Chamber of Commerce and Industry (QCCI) to equip the youth of Baluchistan with modern skills to tap the natural resources of the province.
Addressing the QCCI members, Fauji Foundation Consultant Col (retd) Syed Ameer Haider had said, “Baluchistan needs technicians, not technology.” He had said that modern technical skills were vital for boosting private industries in the province.
Fauji Foundation’s aim is to provide and generate funds for the welfare and benefits of ex-servicemen, their families, and the underprivileged public in disconnected areas.
“Ninety percent of the skilled staff in the industries belongs to other provinces, which is making it hard for private industries in Baluchistan to run and function properly,” he said, urging to impart modern technical training to the young generation of the province after secondary education.
“The Fauji Foundation should establish units for upgradation of mines, fruit, and vegetables which would be helpful to strengthen the provincial economy,” said the consultant.
The Fauji Foundation is one of the largest financial services and one of the largest energy conglomerates in Pakistan, with interests in fertilizer, cement, food, power generation, gas exploration, LPG marketing and distribution, financial services, employment services, and security services.
