AAM TALEEM is established by a group of young of energetic members who are highly motivated and committed for contributing their time. Their skills and energies are devoted to the development and empowerment of socially disadvantaged and vulnerable communities throughout Kashmir and addressing education, social, culture, political awareness, poverty issues and gender based discriminations.
Education is the corner stone of any successful nation. At the heart of most thriving global economies lies a dynamic educational system which prepares their youth to compete with the best in the world. There is no doubt that prosperity of nations now depends solely on the intellectual quality of its human resource and investing in high quality education is synonymous with investing in the future of a nation. Unfortunately, this aspect in Pakistan has been ignored ever-since its independence. Quality education remains the prerogative of children drawn from a thin layer of upper crust of Pakistani Society. 70% of our people living in villages are totally deprived of any quality schooling and consequently can play little role in national policies and its development.
This educational apartheid, with a tiny little elite perpetually dominating country’s social life, its polity and economy, is a sure recipe for social conflicts between the masses and the elite. The current social and sectarian tension and resort to fundamentalist tendencies by the youth, especially from remote and under-developed areas are manifestation of the impact of prevailing archaic system of education for vast majority of our youth in underprivileged areas. It was these harsh realities that motivated the Founders of AAM TALEEM to make a beginning towards educating and grooming the brightest children from rural areas in the hope that these children will one day become role models for their communities by emerging as high class citizens who can demonstrate quality leadership in diverse fields. Moreover, AAM TALEEM also focuses on addressing Education development, Social, Culture, Environmental, Political awareness, Men & women Empowerment and Gender based discriminations.
