This school was the very first project of HAWCA and was initiated with the establishment of HAWCA. Mostly the total number of students, girls and boys, reached to 260. A total of 18 staff worked to run this school. Besides education, the students also were receiving a monthly package of food as well as support from a medical team who were visiting the school regularly.


It is worth mentioning that a significant number of students in this school were working children and the breadwinners of their families, in the morning they attend school and for the rest of the day they work to earn money for their families. They were garbage collectors, mechanic workers, and shopping bag and water sellers. HAWCA also supported a number of the students’ families.
