Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

ILM’s mission is to establish self-sufficient full time schools throughout Pakistan that provides a High Quality, STEM Focused Education to the economically disadvantaged children.

High Standard Education
We believe a High Quality Education comes with a minds-on curriculum. ILM has designed a high standard curriculum, with the assistance of a diverse group of educators, researchers, and professionals from Johns Hopkins and University of Maryland who provide advisory and academic support to enrich ILM’s programs.

STEM Focused Curriculum
The coursework heavily emphasizes science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields to best lay the foundation of personal and professional success for children. ILM offers courses such as Robotics, Mathematical Arts and Computer Programming that allow these our students to be competitive in a global marketplace.

Character Building Integrated in the Curriculum
The aim is to develop conscious and responsible citizens who will in turn give back to and improve their communities as they grow.

Meaningful Family Engagement
ILM strongly believes in parents-teachers partnership. Meaningful Family Engagement programs have been established to involve parents, educate them about their child’s educational emerging needs and taught the strategies to act on. a Parents Teacher Association has been formed by ILM.

Appropriate Class size
Having fewer students in a classroom and more staff facilitates high-quality interactions between teachers and children. At ILM, a class size of 25 with a student-to-staff ratio of 25:2 is the largest acceptable, as defined by various professional standards.

Feedback Looped in the System
ILM believes that a quality rating and improvement system establishes quality standards and supports continuous improvement efforts. Students and parents feedback systems designed to specify quality, provide a basis for program accountability, and support program improvement.

1) Our experienced and highly qualified young leadership team.

1) Our highly trained faculty teach the children based on each child’s age and stage of development. Our teaching staff help each child meet goals that are just right for that child. The teaching staff is trained to help child in defining the goals valuing and including each child’s family, language, and culture

2) ILM’s teaching staff provide an on-going support to the students throughout their career by providing coaching and mentoring. Researches have proven that teachers support towards students improve student retention rate.

Accomplishments
- ILM has removed dozens of children from streets of Karachi and enrolled them into one of its Educational programs.
- Regarding self-sustaining model, our school is capable of generating its 53% revenue from its own.

Future Goals
- Our goal is to fully sustain ILM's school in Karachi by 2021.
- Our goal is to begin another school in Islamabad.
