Here is who we are...
Prof. Yad Muhammad Memorial Trust is a charitable organization working to educate the poor and underprivileged children in The Onyx School (a project of PYMMT).
The trust is established in the memory of Yad Muhammad (Late), who had been working in the Higher Education Department of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa as an Associate Professor for 26 years. This institution is the brainchild of his son, Muhammad Fida Hussain, the trustee and founding president. The sole purpose behind the establishment of this institution is to keep continue the stopped educational linkage of Prof. Yad Muhammad and provide the children with quality education. We aim also to help poor, handicap and orphan children by teaching them skills so that they should stand by their own.
Firstly, The inspiration came after the premature death of Prof. Yad Muhammad in a road accident in April 2014. The foundation of a welfare school with the name of The Onyx School was laid down in April 2015 at Ittehad Colony, Jalala (Takht Bhai), a small town/colony of District Mardan (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), where most of the people are poor and cannot pay the high fee.
The school has been charging a very nominal fee from the students i.e. Rs. 150-200 per month due to poverty in our area. Thirty percent of the students students have been admitted 100% free and mostly on half fee. In conclusion, after the number of students have increased, the school is donated to Prof. Yad Muhammad Memorial Trust to keep it operational smoothly. Alhamadulillah! The school is currently serving/educating 123 students and providing them with the quality education. The school helps the children in different aspects besides education. We not only teach and educate them but also developing their practical skills to face the world.
