Hira Schools in Pakistan are a Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan-sponsored Islamic school system that operates more than 215 schools and 10 colleges across Pakistan. It is a universal education project run by the Hira National Education Foundation, a non-governmental, non-profit and non-sectarian organization working in the field of education since 1997.

The project is sponsored by Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan.[1] The system has branches in all four Pakistani provinces, including Kashmir, FATA and Gilgit-Baltistan. The system offers education ranging from preschool to secondary level in addition to a program of preparatory courses towards the completion of a Secondary School Certificate. Hira Schools maintain low tuition fees to allow low-income students to enroll.


Tanzeem-e-Asatiza Pakistan (Teachers Association of Pakistan), a teacher wing of Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan, introduced the Hira educational project in the late 1990s.[1]


It operates 215 schools and 10 colleges across the country. The system employs 2,045 male and 1,415 female teachers who provide instruction to the 32,000 male and 28,700 female students.[2]

Organizational structure[edit]

The Hira Educational Foundation organizes all the branches, develops curriculum, conducts faculty training and inspects schools.


The curriculum is provided by the Association For Academic Quality (AFAQ)[1] and includes AFAQ's Sun Series and AFAQ's Iqbal Series of textbooks.[3]
