The CARE Foundation was started in 1988 in Sheikhupura in response to floodwater ravaging low-lying areas. Seema Aziz, together with fellow active citizens, traveled to the stricken areas and helped the affected population reconstruct their homes with her time, resources and her bare hands. During the course of her work, Seema realized that this area lacked a proper school. In conversations with the local community, it became clear that there was a dire need for a school to educate the alarming number of children roaming freely during the day. In January 1991, CARE opened its doors to a school in Iqbal Town on Sheikhupura Road. On the first day, 250 children lined up outside the school, unkempt and barely clothed, but curious and eager to learn. .
