La Salle Urdu High School, Faisalabad

La Salle Urdu High School is an Urdu language high school for boys in Faisalabad that offers an education to Christian and Muslim students from extremely poor areas in the city.

The school was founded in 1961. The school is co-educational up to Year 6. After Year 6, it only educates boys due to the national requirement that there must be physically separate campuses for boys and girls after Year 6. At present there are 257 students (169 boys, 88 girls) and 21 staff in primary school, and 267 boys and 16 staff for the high school.

Many of the students come from broken families. In many cases, they lack even the most basic facilities at home. The parents of these children are mainly labourers on daily wages, sanitary workers or unemployed, and all find it difficult to pay even a very small sum of money for tuition fees. The students come from areas where they are exposed to social problems such as drugs, child labour and domestic violence. These circumstances pose challenges to the school in its ability to deliver a quality education.

In early 2021, the Lasallian Foundation provided La Salle Urdu High School with $1,500 for water purification.
