President KF Message about Kaifi Sb Marhoom (Teacher CCK):

 

leftquote Kaifi sahib was a man of modest means and made his living by teaching all his life. But let me share with you all that he was a man with the largest heart I have ever come across. In his will left a sum of over 5 million to the Foundation. This is an indication of the large-heartedness of the man we knew as Kaifi sahib. For me this is very humbling because it shows his confidence in the foundation and in his students.  rightquote

Achievements

Kohatian Foundation, since its launch and even before its launch has been very active in helping Kohatians and the society at large. Among many others, some of the notable achievements are:

1.  Launch of the Kohatians website and discussion group at Yahoo Groups. This E-group is for the Kohatians of Cadet College Kohat. This group will enable old colleagues to meet. It aims to provide a communication bridge between all cadets.  The discussion group was launched in February 2001 and has over 400 members. Through this web based discussion group, the Kohatians all over the world are able to keep in touch and get connected. A number of ex cadets have re-discovered long lost friends through the group.

The address for Yahoo Group is: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/kohatians/
