Maria-Helena Primary School, Dharyala Jalip (2006)
This is first primary school with our new partner The Maria-Helana Foundation, Canada. TMF had a high school for girls in an old building, and a primary school in rented space that it had to abandon in the town cemtre. MHF provided funds for construction of a primary school on a vacant piece of land adjoining its high school for girls.

Hazara TM Public School, Shinkiari (2007).
This large school was badly damaged during the 2005 earthquake in Pakistan. The original school was based on three separate buildings. After the earthquake of 2005 in Pakistan, President of MHF came to Pakistan in November 2005 and Dr. Bernard Mohan from the Board of Directors came in September 2006. They met with our partners working in the earthquake-affected areas, and also visited our other schools. MHF donated $125,000 to rebuild the primary section on the ground floor of a single two-storey building. Other donors came forward to construct the upper floor to house the high school section of the school.

Talis Primary School Skardu (2011)
During the 2010 floods a small primary school in the very north of Pakistan was completely washed away. MHF donated $35,000 to build a new school on a new site in the same village Talis, on a plot of land donated by a local notable. This school is the result of a special fundraising appeal by MHF president Dr. Muhammad Iqbal.
