Iffat has a passion to serve the community through quality education. She has been running a private school with her husband (also shown in the photo). It is a building on a large plot of land built for the purpose, with a great scope for expansion. She has a dream of expanding the school and getting more children enrolled. There are over 200 students (more than half are girls) currently enrolled in the school, including their own son. She encourages extracurricular activities at the school, and has a large ground where she organizes sports and other student events. Now she has applied for a loan of 100,000 PKR through Kashf Foundation. She wants to spend the loan to complete the construction of a new classroom for her expanding student enrollment, as well as to repair and renovate the school.
