Ummah Children Academy
Full-time Care for Orphans
In 2003, Ummah Welfare Trust purchased five acres of land in the Nowshera district of Pakistan, with the goal of creating an orphanage that would provide unmatched care to suffering orphans in Pakistan.
Construction began in 2005 and, following a huge effort, the Ummah Children Academy was established in just a short period of time. This unique orphanage today provides full-time care to over 700 orphans from across Pakistan.
Children at the academy receive a high-quality education, regular medical check-ups, three meals and supplementary snacks each day; made-to-measure clothing; and support for their families/guardians.
Outside of school hours, children are given constant supervision from staff and social workers. They are encouraged to play sports, continue further study and learn about Islam.
For Ummah Welfare Trust, sponsoring an orphan means loving him, sheltering him and guiding him to live in this world. Since the beginning of its construction in 2005 to today completion, the Ummah Children Academy in Nowshera has captured these ideals.
Ummah Welfare Trust provide regular feedback so that you can follow their individual progress.

The Best Education
In 2013, in the BISE Mardan examinations that take place annually in Pakistan, children in the 9th and 10th classes of the Ummah Children Academy excelled. The average mark at the academy was comparable, and even higher, than those of many private schools in the country.
50, 824 students from a total of 936 schools took part in the examinations. Despite the huge number of participants, two students from the Ummah Children Academy were ranked in the top 20 for outstanding results.
