Mission Statement

To provide high-quality education, permeated with human values, to people who, because of economic depression, have no other means of becoming educated - without discriminating based on social, religious, or racial background.

Description

Established in 1994 under the name "Dosti Foundation" and designated as a 501(C) (3) organization, Global Education Campaign's primary focus is creating educational opportunities for children and young adults in economically and politically oppressed areas in developing countries. In these areas children working, begging and digging through garbage for scraps they can sell is a common sight.

We believe that all children deserve a nurturing environment with clean air and water; good nutrition that facilitates normal physical growth; and educational opportunities that allow them to realize their potential and become productive citizens.

We were instrumental in founding a now self-sufficient school in the Congo. In early 2012, we started a school in the town of Rostaq, in the province of Takhar, in Afghanistan.

We have worked mainly in the Great City of Peshawar in northwestern Pakistan. Our founders, Dr. Munir Ahmad and Tahira Shaheen, both Pakistani by birth first established Dosti Welfare Organization and registered the organization in Pakistan.

Dosti Welfare Organization establishes schools in Pakistan and maintains them with funds raised by Global Education Campaign in the U.S.
