Since the school was set up in 2004, with an initial student body of just sixty five, demand in the area has steadily increased and after visiting the school in March 2015, it is easy to see why. A third floor is needed to be added to the boys school due to increased demand.
The site consists of primary and secondary schools for both boys and girls and now serves 850 pupils, 700 of whom are orphans. The buildings are spacious and clean, the classrooms light and airy and inspirational messages adorn the walls. Each morning begins with playtime, followed by an assembly, where the children recite poetry and Qur'an, give performances and make announcements. All of the orphans in the school are part of the Muslim Hands orphan sponsorship scheme and during each assembly the pupils make dua for their donors.
