Mr. Abdul Kader Jaffer formed the Ahmed E.H. Jaffer Foundation in 1996 in memory of his late father. The Foundation has initiated a not-for-profit School of Excellence - THE HUB SCHOOL - a boarding school for 800 boys, which will surpass existing standards of education in Pakistan. This will be followed by a boarding school for girls and finally a university of national importance on the outskirts of Karachi on 240 acres of valuable land donated by the Jaffer family.
Education is a Jaffer family legacy to Pakistan. The Islamia School in Pune was founded in 1907 by Abdul Kader Jaffer's great grandfather, Khan Bahadur Haroon Jaffer. His grandfather, Sir Ebrahim Haroon Jaffer organised the first Muslim Educational Conference in 1920. His late father, Ahmed E.H. Jaffer introduced educational reforms as a member of the Indian Legislative Assembly in 1940 and later; after partition, in the Pakistan Legislative Assembly he raised several bills and motions for improvement and increase in allocation for the education sector.
The purpose of the Foundation is to work mostly, but not limited to, in the fields of Education, Healthcare, Sports and Culture.
The Hub School is a quality educational institution that has been established by the Ahmed E. H. Jaffer Foundation to prepare boys for a life of leadership, service and personal fulfillment. Academic achievement is foremost amongst the The Hub School's objectives with an aim to maintain and surpass existing standards of educational excellence in Pakistan. The goal is to promote independence of thought, respect for others and instil creativity and responsibility within a broad range of activities.
Confidence and character-building are an essential part of life at The Hub School, with the aim to inspire boys to develop their talents and reach for excellence.
