Darussafaka Society was founded in 1863 with the aim of providing equality of opportunity in education to needy, talented children who had lost their fathers. Since then, it has maintained its presence with this mission of "equality of opportunity in education." Our 155-year old society, whose role is to raise funds via donations to finance the school, amended its statutes on 14 April 2012 and opened the doors of Darussafaka Schools to also include students who have lost their mothers. Today, Darussafaka creates a better future for needy, talented students who have lost one or both parents. Inviting students at the age of nine, the Society provides full scholarship and boarding from a student's fourth year through to the end of high school. Given an opportunity for a world-class education, students are able to embark on a new life as self confident, thinking, inquiring, and curious individuals who feel responsible for the community.
