Friendship School, Village Ain Ban, Hattian Bala, Kashmir

Village Ain Ban is one of the deprived remote areas of the district Hattian Bala AJK. It is densely populated villages comprising of 6500 individuals and some hamlets of other revenue villages are also adjacent to the village which constitute huge population of the area.

Ain Ban is located in the groove valley on the bank of stream Qazi Naag. During heavy rains and flash floods it becomes hard to access other areas from the village.

The only primary school of the village had no building and other essential material for the education of children (both girls and boys). The enrollment of the school is more than 175, but it lacked all the facilities. During heavy rains the faculty of the school hadno option other than to make it a holiday. The stipulation was continuously effecting the education of 175 children mostly belonging to underprivileged families.
