The enrollment at the montessori level has reached its highest since the school’s inception.
By the end the of recently concluded school year, there were more than 100 students enrolled between the ages of 3 and 6.
Nazeer Foundation has arranged a six-week course for new and existing teachers. Twelve teachers have been selected to participate in the workshop. They are being trained by a professional teacher’s trainer from Karachi in order to help improve the overall teaching standards at Kathore.
The workshop primarily focuses on concepts such as organization, teacher-student relationships, lesson planning, and effective teaching skills.
LiveWIRE International, a Shell Social Investment program, locally known as Shell Tameer, visited Kathore’s Higher Secondary School on March 1, 2010.
The organization arranged a workshop by the name of “Bright Ideas” to motivate students to pursue entrepreneurship and help them develop ideas on business options. The workshop was a five hour program with 22 participants (both male and female) between the ages of 18-23.
Not only was each participant empowered with greater knowledge and a new perspective with broadened horizons, but they were given certificates of achievement as well. They also benefited immensely due to their networking with Shell Tameer and Tameer’s partner, SMEDA (Small and Medium Enterprise Development Authority).

Nazeer Foundation arranges for a teacher from Karachi to visit Kathore once a week to teach female students the basics of English grammar and speaking skills.
This session is open for students of all classes, mainly comprised of grades 9 through 12.
The classes have been in progress since 2007. As a result, many girls from the Kathore area have now been able to perform better on their national board exams which require them to read and write in English.
The girls have also learned how to become better communicators. Most importantly, they can gain and have a better understanding of the world around them simply because they are finally grasping and understanding the overwhelming international language of communication, English.
Nazeer Foundation began an ambulance service for villages in March 2008. The ambulance transports villagers to Karachi-area hospitals as necessary.
Since the beginning of the service, over 400 villagers have relied on the ambulance service to provide care when the alternative would have been no access to hospitals and care.
Nazeer Foundation distributed school uniforms to about 300 students for classes 6-10 for the KKJG Higher Secondary Government School for Boys.
Before this, students had little concept of clean clothing or hygiene when attending classes. School uniforms have multiple positive results: The students are less likely to focus on their family’s limited resources when picking clothes for school, and students who are clean and hygienic learn better.
They are now required to come in a neat and clean uniform on a daily basis.
Nazeer Foundation contracted with a professional teacher’s trainer in Karachi to provide rigorous training to 30 teachers prior to the beginning of the new school year.
The training was held at KKJG in Kathore during the summer months. The 30 teachers will take their renewed knowledge to all the schools and Montessori schools managed by Nazeer Foundation.
Nazeer Foundation recognized a need for an ambulance service for rural areas and as of March 2008 has made an ambulance available to the local villages.
The villagers reach the ambulance through cell phone service and are transported to Karachi-area hospitals as necessary.
