Hoshyar Foundation is a secular, non-profit, U.S.-based organization whose purpose is to raise and distribute funds in support of human empowerment through female education.
Hoshyar's principal mandate is to increase girls' and women's access to education, especially beyond primary school. We work primarily in remote communities in Pakistan.
Hoshyar’s programs emphasize female empowerment through formal education and literacy training. We presently sponsor schools in eastern and northwestern Pakistan. Learn about our programs in Lahore, Mansehra district, and other areas.
Hoshyar focuses its efforts on keeping female students in school past the primary level. Our students are eager for the opportunity to study. Explore the students’ perspective, the way schooling is organized, and the larger economic context.
Hoshyar’s work is based on an appreciation of the history and culture of the South Asian region. Discover the role of the women’s movement in Pakistan, find good stories for young learners, and follow the camera into the classroom.
