SHAFIQ AHMAD ANSARI MEMEORIAL TRUST Food for Education program distributes free food prepared at our kitchens on a daily basis, to poor children if they attend any formal or non-formal educational class. It thus combines food with education-we now have a child who is educated and well fed also. The programme has been very effective in arresting the drop-out rate in schools.

It is difficult to categorize SFAMT by their specific activities; many SFAMT perform a variety of activities and often shift the balance of the activities they pursue. However, in broader terms, most SFAMT can be classified as operational or campaigning. Operational SFAMT achieve small-scale change directly through projects while campaigning SFAMT achieve large-scale change indirectly through influence on the political system.
