Merged Areas EDUCATION FOUNDATION is an autonomous body established to promote education in Merged Districts.

Foundation was established in December, 2004 through a notification by governor Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.  The Honorable president of Pakistan accorded approval of the Foundation on 4th June, 2007.  The Regulation of the Foundation was approved by the President in March 2010 and promulgated in Gazette Notification by ministry of SAFRON in April, 2010.

Though the Foundation was established in 2004 it could not start operation till March, 2007 due to poor law and order situation in Merged Districts.  The Foundation’s initial activity started with the execution of an ADP project “Assistance to Hundred Talented Students” under which 390 students have been admitted in quality educational institutions outside Merged Districts. MEF is now undertaking various activities to realize its vision of providing enabling education.
