Punjab Daanish Schools and Centres of Excellence Authority
The symbol of lotus in a slough is an apt representation of the Daanish philosophy. Conceived as a far-reaching educational welfare enterprise for the poorest of the poor, Daanish is arguably the biggest project in ‘social equity through education’ in the entire South Asian region. The idea of upward social mobility through education is incomplete till education itself along with the needed wherewithal is brought to the very huts and homes of the needy. Thus, huge as they are, all Daanish schools are placed in the middle of the disadvantaged nowhere (and for a good reason) along the periphery of Punjab, specifically in areas which are high in poverty and low in literacy. Sanctified through the promulgation of Punjab Daanish Schools & Centres of Excellence Authority Act in 2010, the endeavor has grown to become the largest chain of residential schools in the country. In these residential institutions, the children of the most neglected section of the society find their future through provision of free quality education alongside state-of-the art facilities placed in highly elaborate infrastructure. The children who had no hope whatsoever of making a future are provided everything that a student can hope for completely as gratis.
