Congratulation! Successful Completion of 1 Year

The project of Main Stream Secondary Education was initiated in April 2010 and has successfully completed one year. It was possible because of the support of our donors.  In this regard Zindagi Trust’s deepest gratitude to its donors, well wishers and supporters who are providing magnificent support to Zindagi Trust students to continue their studies. All students have been promoted to grade 7 and have started their studies in their respective schools. Regional teams paid all schools expenses and supported students in purchasing school course books and uniforms.

This year 60 Zindagi Trust (ZT) primary graduated students out of 300 will get admission in ZT cooperative Private and Government schools across Pakistan for the year 2011-2012. These graduates have shown interest and have met the criteria of studying in grade 6.

This update will special highlight the academic progress of Khanzeb, studying in Nimra Academy Primary and Secondary School, Karachi. He has passed grade 6 with flying colors.  He has secured 2nd position in his class. Khanzeb is talented, hard working and aspires to be an engineer. Well done! Khanzeb, Zindagi Trust is proud of you.

Apart from the position holders, remaining Zindagi Trust students’ academic performance for the year 2010-2011 has been rated ‘B’ which is considered very good. Great! Keep it up.

 

Once again Thank You!  all our supporters.

Breakfast Program Celebrates its 2nd Anniversary

The management of SMB Fatima Jinnah Government Girls High School highly acknowledges the support of its donors and well-wishers. We are also thankful to the parents for their advice in making breakfast program nutritious & tempting for children. The progress and achievements were not possible without their support.

The school initiated Breakfast Program in April, 2009 with a goal to help more children get the nutrition they need during the school day. It would be really encouraging to know that children are practicing discipline, table manners and good eating habits in school and at home. A plan has been developed to make this event a memorable one.

The breakfast program caters the need of 220 children of KG 1 & KG 2. The appreciation and feedback of parents boost the morale of breakfast committee, comprising of 4 members, who oversee the whole process with dedication and commitment.

Presently, we are reviewing and reflecting on the breakfast program to make it healthier and nutritious. Once again thanks to our donors & well wishers for supporting us in promoting healthy practices in education of young children.

Looking forward to your continued support!

Academic Activities in I Am Paid to Learn Schools

Before sharing an overview on the academics in PTL schools across Pakistan, Zindagi Trust thanks all its donors, well wishers and contributors for their full support and contribution.


Recent academic term for Paid-to-learn Schools across Pakistan started in November, 2010. An intake of around 480 children got admission in PTL schools across Pakistan. A total number of 250 students graduated and 100 students were successful in getting admission in grade 6 in different private and government schools.  It would be really heartening to know that since start of 2010, drop out ratio has dropped to 6%, which is much below the national drop out figure i.e. 50%


At this juncture i.e. beginning March, we are at the end of the academic term. Teachers and academic coordinators are engaged in preparing students’ consolidated report based on their on-going assessment. In March students will appear in the summative assessment and the term will end with promotions of students to next grades.


Apart from the content of the syllabus, academic team is very much focused on the ethical and emotional development of PTL students. The progress report comprises ethical and emotional development of each child as well.


Aforementioned initiatives and achievements raise our morale. We believe that it is all because of our donors’ support and good wishes. Zindagi Trust is obliged and proud of its donors.


We look forward to our donors continued support and an active participation in terms of suggestions and guidance.
