In a significant achievement, a Pakistani school, operated by the Kashmir Orphan Relief Trust (KORT), secured the prestigious Zayed Sustainability Prize worth $100,000 at the UN climate conference in Dubai.

The school was declared the best Global School in South Asia for its groundbreaking project focused on water conservation and organic farming. Competing against finalists from India and Bangladesh, the KORT school stood out for its innovative approach to addressing climate-related challenges.

The KORT School and College of Excellence, based in Azad Kashmir, was established in 2016 to support children orphaned in the 2005 earthquake. With over 500 students, the institution provides education, boarding facilities, food, clothing, and medical care. The prize money will be utilized for projects related to clean water and organic farming in rural areas, according to Chaudhry Mohammed Akhtar, the founding chairman of the organization.
