The Kaghan Memorial Trust (KMT) is a non-profit charitable organisation registered in Islamabad on January 6, 2006 in the aftermath of the earthquake that hit northern Pakistan in 2005. The sole immediate objective of KMT is to build and operate a school in the Kaghan Valley. This Kaghan Memorial School offers free education of a high standard to some of the poorest and most vulnerable children from this underdeveloped and devastated area.
The Trustees of KMT consider education to be the most reliable vehicle for the sustainable development of any community. KMT believes that a good school education will allow underprivileged children (boys AND girls) from Kaghan to compete for places in the best universities of the country, eventually leading to employment prospects that their previous generation could never have imagined. Each child given an opportunity for such an education can become an agent for change for an entire family in the future.
