Nasra Public School (NPS) was born in 2004 as a social enterprise with a mission to provide affordable quality education for K-12 boys and girls belonging to the low to mid income families of Karachi. It has been built on the legacy set down by the Education Trust Nasra Schools (ETNS) system, founded in 1949; using it as an inspirational springboard to continue the same mission of providing quality education that is both accessible & affordable.
With the purpose of taking in the overflow of students at ETNS which was at full capacity, NPS was established as a sole proprietorship in 2004 by setting up its first campus, the Lasbela campus at Brito Road.
This was followed by the Malir campus in 2009, and the North Karachi and the North Nazimabad campuses in 2011. In 2014-2015, negotiations with Acumen and visits by their team, led to a large scale expansion and the opening of several new campuses, bringing the total strength of students to 1800.
By 2016, an additional five campuses were set up due to an overwhelming response from the surrounding communities. Today, the NPS campuses are spread over the most densely populated areas of Karachi serving multi-lingual, multi-ethnic and diverse communities. Our campuses are located in Garden , Lasbela, Malir, Model Colony, Federal B Area, Saudabad, North Karachi, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, and Gulistan-e-Johar; areas marked with poverty and prosperity. Each NPS campus is fully equipped with modern facilities to ensure the students are provided with a nurturing environment for both academic and personal development. In addition, pro female employment policies contribute to sustainable social impact.
NPS’s strength lies in its ability to leverage the experience, expertise, support and synergies necessary to rapidly scale up and take affordable quality schooling to communities across Pakistan.
This social impact business model focuses on providing affordable and easy access to schooling and continues to expand its reach to meet the growing demand for quality education in a city with over 22 million people. The thrust of the growth strategy focuses on taking NPS into the communities making it truly accessible.
