Welcome to Hamza Foundation Academy
Hamza Foundation Academy for the Deaf is the project of Hamza Foundation which is a registered Welfare Trust Organization. The origin of Hamza Foundation dates back to 1954, when Late Mian Muhammad Amin S/O Late Mian Muhammad Hayat established Sabira Masjid in Sher Shah, Karachi, with a view to make it a center for imparting basic Islamic teachings to the children of the destitute living in the area. After his death on May 28, 1967, his successors decided to lay the foundation of a social welfare institution in his memory.
A body named “AMIN HAYAT TRUST” was constituted with the ultimate objective of developing it into a grand charitable organization. Its name was changed in 1978 to HAMZA FOUNDATION and got it registered as a Welfare Trust. The name “HAMZA” was picked up in reverence of Hazrat Ameer Hamza, the uncle of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him).
Educational facilities for the hearing impaired children are far less as compared to the large number of such cases in Lahore and in the country at large. The educational facilities provided to these children were not up to the required standards. To provide education to the Hearing Impaired Children on modern and scientific lines, Hamza Foundation authorities decided to setup an institute with an aim to provide the Hearing Impaired Students with quality education and social rehabilitation.
Hamza Foundation Academy for the Deaf, Lahore was established in September, 1988 for education, training and rehabilitation of the Hearing Impaired Children in line with the aims and objectives of the Foundation.
