Our Inspiration

We take our inspiration from the Azad schools initiative of Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan (1890-1988), dearly called Baacha Khan by his people. He was the 20th century Pashtun reformer and non-violent freedom fighter of the Indian sub-continent against the British rule.

Achievements

Over the past ten years, the BKTEF succeeded to expand Baacha Khan Schools vertically and horizontally. The BKTEF also succeeded to train thousands of youth and teachers. See domains of Schools and Success Stories above.
