ILM UK strives to ensure that children from poor backgrounds are not deprived of a quality education.
At our schools, we monitor student progress every six months and we work closely with our teachers and school/orphanage staff to maintain high educational standards. We encourage staff to contact us frequently about student needs and requirements and together we build, strengthen and promote supportive pupil/teacher relationships; we focus on responsibility and create opportunities for personal challenge.
We operate fourteen schools across four countries, where Orphans are provided with a free education. Our schools benefit many children from the most underprivileged communities in Malawi, Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh.
Based in Gazipur, Uttar Pradesh, India, Shams National School is ILM’s flagship educational facility. Here we run classes from nursery stage to college level, for over 3,000 students. More than half of our students come from extremely poor families; others are orphans sponsored by ILM UK donors.
Shams National School is affiliated with the Uttar Pradesh Board of High School and Intermediate Education in Allahabad, India, and is closely linked with the British Council in New Delhi. We offer an A-Level education to our college students and are proud to have had a 100% pass rate last year. This firmly keeps us on our toes.
