Iqral School was established in 1998 to serve the children of the poorest families in its neighborhood. The school now serves grade 1-10 and has an enrolment of 350 students. The schools main aim is to alleviate the effects of poverty through education and literacy programs.

The school principal, Ridwan Ullah Khan stresses quality education as well as equality for girls and women in education.

With more desks and a school bus from this grant, the school could host more students whose education is being neglected. Also included in this project are computers, improved science lab, and a generator. The electricity goes off most of the time so that the children spend much of the time sitting in the dark.
