Sabaq Foundation Overview
Sabaq Foundation Trust was founded in 2012 as a registered non-profit Trust with Government of Pakistan with its offices in F-6/1, Islamabad. And, Iqbal Mustafa Khan is the Chairman of Sabaq Foundation Trust (also referred to as “Sabaq Foundation” on this website).
Sabaq Foundation’s main objective is to create world class tutoring videos for Pakistani students studying in English medium public schools (later we will cover Urdu medium curriculum as well). But, for English medium curriculum, all lectures are taught in Urdu so students would understand them without any difficulty.
We are starting with 9th and 10th class Mathematics and have created approximately 400 videos at the time of this website launch. We will aggressively add more videos every week to our website. Later, we will add Physics, Chemistry, Biology, English, and other subjects and also cover 7th class, 8th class, 1st year, and 2nd year classes.
Sabaq Foundation has built a team of highly qualified full-time staff that works hard to prepare its educational content. Our goal is to ensure that the quality of our work stays high so the students benefit from it greatly.
All tutoring videos created by Sabaq are made available to people totally FREE through its website. Additionally, we’re going to explore other channels of distribution to ensure that all students in Pakistan have access to these videos.
