The area of Azad Town Sue-e-Asal is far behind from basic facilities of life. People work from dawn to dusk to fulfill their basic needs as their income can not meet their expenses. Unfortunately some children are forced to do accept some regular job in order to meet their expenses. Majority of the residents living in this area are poor factory workers or are doing cleaning works.
FCO recognized the need for education to be balanced with other activities. Education should bean integrated part of community life. To this end, Friends Public High School opened on 9th March, 2013 at Sue-e-Asal, Lahore.

Since children after studded will not be doing slavery and laborer work anymore. We can see better that the children of this area are really getting better and better. Also the parents are now very careful in studies of their children.
