How We Began
HUMANE TOUCH started as just a group of young women with an urge to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. Initially Humane Touch adopted the course of rehabilitating the disable; especially children affected with polio. As an attempt to help the disables, Humane Touch sponsored calipers and organized surgeries when needed. This led to other areas which needed a Humane Touch; a caring way of reaching out to the less-privileged ones.

Primary Education & Scholarship For Higher Education
Education is the key that allows people to move up in the world, seek better jobs, and ultimately succeed in life. Humane Touch aims at providing Education to every child who is in need. Every year hundreds of enthusiastic children are provided Scholarships in order to continue their primary and high school education, thus giving them an opportunity to fulfill their dreams. Students who are interested in higher studies are also benefited a great deal from the Scholarship Programme.
HUMANE TOUCH provides quality education at a nominal fee. The AL-AZHAR Foundation School was adopted in 2002, which had 60 students and 4 staff.
