SNPET is synonymous with quality enabling education for disadvantaged communities, where education truly transforms not only the child who is studying in the program but also the entire family as envisaged by its Patron and sponsor Raza Kazim- ‘a renaissance citizen/philanthropist’.

Our school has been functioning for 25 years. Today, it has 900 students with 60% of the students being girls. We operate from Nursery to Class 12 (15 years), and is among the handful of schools in Pakistan which provide Baccalaureate facilities at the primary level (Classes pre-school to five) for the vulnerable struggling communities of Lahore. The school has seen 600 graduates at matriculate and intermediate level with distinction. Today some of our alumni have obtained degrees in medicine, pharmacy, economics, agriculture, software, engineering, and accounting. Some women alumni have gone in for quality teaching, PhDs and fashion design. Philanthropic donations and support from caring institutions such as yourselves have enabled the school to succeed in its mission ‘enabling our future” for children from low-income families.

About The Play- “Naang Val”

“Naang Val” revolved around two main characters, Jutt, the man and his wife. Jutt is a shirker, timid and unintelligent man whereas his wife is a brave and wise woman. Once Jutt gets into big trouble but his wife extricates him from that trial shrewdly and daringly. The theme of the Play is to consider women as wise and bold as a man in society. The way the whole universe including water, fire, space, air, and earth are for all human beings, man and woman should also be considered as equally capable and competent. Men and women are equal in every aspect. Gender discrimination must be discouraged in society and empowering, women will spur productivity and economic growth of the society.
