It started out in 1999 as a one-classroom school in an apartment at the edge of a colony in Model Town, Lahore, for orphans and children of families who cannot afford to send their children to school. The brainchild of Rubina Ramzan, Angela and Arthur that started out with 57 kids now caters to 400 children. The Miracle School has also initiated an outreach programme in Kasur, where the number of students currently stands at 200.
The children who study at Miracle School are unable to afford a healthy meal a day. To address this concern, the Miracle School sought Nestlé’s help. The company provides each student with a daily serving of milk. Although the school cannot provide them with a meal, the administration says that regular intake of milk provides children some of the nourishment they need.
