Kotera Sahlian school started in January 1996 on ‘single-class single-teacher’ basis through a small funding of PKR30,000.00. The school today has an enrolment of 307 boys and girls in kindergarten, primary and secondary grades. The present number of teachers in the school is 15.
The school is registered with the AJK Government’s Department of Education. It is helping underprivileged children have access to their fundamental right of education as enshrined in Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Dakar Framework of Action, and guaranteed through Article 25A of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. The curricula at the school follow the National Curriculum Guidelines and ensure a rigorous and activity-oriented learning process suitable for all the children.
The community, children and teachers at the school have always expressed their desire for a safe and purpose-built school. In the local area there is a lack of adequate buildings to rent which are appropriate and safe for both students and teachers. In view of this, Abdullah Aid has aiming to construct a seismic-compliant and fit-for-purpose two-storey school for the benefit of the pupils and teachers.
