Adopt an Orphanage is a nonprofit organization, founded by students of Nixor College in 2010.
Adopt an Orphanage strives to tend to all the essential needs of those unprivileged individuals, regardless of age, gender or race, who have been deprived of a family.
It started off with managing an orphanage Sirat-ul-Jannah, providiG In terms of health, education, accommodation and various other day-to-day requirements and now has extended its service to another orphanage, Anjuman Hayatul Islam.
In January 2013, Adopt an Orphanage kicked off the year by having its annual Winter Carnival for the kids of Sirat-ul-Jannah.

Why Choose Adopt an Orphanage?
Adopt an Orphanage is a non-profit organization which tends to the needs of those unfortunate children that have been deprived of a family.
Unlike most other organizations and projects, Adopt an Orphanage has zero overheads. Since it is a student-run entity, no members or volunteers are paid.
Your funds will be spent on the children and in case the team falls short of funds, monetary contributions made by the Nixor Community and money in Adopt An Orphanage’s bank account would be used.
The Prophet, peace be upon him, said, “The one who cares for an orphan and myself will be together in Paradise like this,” and he held his two fingers together.
Regular tuition classes will take place four days a week from Monday to Thursday for students of KG to Grade 6.
Conveyance, via a coaster to and from Nixor, will be arranged by Adopt An Orphanage for the children of Sirat-ul-Jannah.
Subjects, currently part of the curriculum, are English, Urdu, Math and Science although we are hoping to diversify the curriculum to include Art and General Knowledge as well.
We also plan to arrange field trips on a quarterly basis as a way to for the children to learn through a more practical and hands-on approach.
This project revolves around the idea of conservation of the environment. This initiative will start with a small corner-side garden in Nixor, where the children will grow a variety of plants which include; chilies, garlic and coriander.
Activities planned include:
A psychological training session was held with Dr. Sophiya on 8th July 2013. The session was conducted for the volunteers of Adopt An Orphanage, teaching them on how to interact with the children of Sirat-ul-Jannah.
