Zindagi Trust

Our mission is two-part: 1) To provide non-formal primary education through a creative, well-designed curriculum to Pakistan's underprivileged working children, thus empowering them to become responsible citizens as well as readying them for vocational or secondary education. 2) To assist the Government of Pakistan in reforming state schools and curricula so as to bring them at par with the challenges of present time, so that the majority of the country's youth that studies in them can get an equal opportunity at a bright future.

Breakfast, Nutrition & Brain Power

Zindagi Trust so appreciates the contribution of its donors, well wishers & supporters for making the breakfast program successful. It is all because of them that we are engaged in making the breakfast time the most fun time for our children. Your generosity in providing nutritious breakfast to children is directly benefiting their health. It has been observed during yearly check-ups of children that school breakfast is linked to positive health outcomes of children, including healthy body weight.
 
Parents, teachers and the Principal have positive reviews for the program and parents’ comments about breakfast are heartening. On top of that, there are very positive benefits when it comes to children's behavior, attitude about learning and attitude about coming to school.
 
 KG 1 & KG 2 teachers are involved in the breakfast program and are very satisfied with the breakfast in the school. When it comes to nutrition education, teachers have integrated knowledge of nutritious food with different subjects. Children showed a very positive response to it and they pass the nutrition information at home as well. I must say to all our supporters that you are doing a wonderful job. Your generosity is directly shaping the lives of our beneficiaries for which we are thankful.
 
Once again thank you for being so generous and thoughtful!

Today, I would like to take this time and start the updates with a thank you note, which means a lot to us. Thanks to the generosity of our donors who are supporting us to literate the population of working children.  Zindagi Trust and its beneficiaries are very grateful to all its donors and supporters who are making difference in their lives.

The impact that the project makes on the students is that these working children graduate in primary education and continue their secondary education. Confidence building and communication skills are at the heart of their education.

A part from scheme of work, academic coordinators and teachers have planned a lot of activities which includes competitions, periodical picnics & celebrating events for the new academic term to make learning interesting.

Finally, Zindagi Trust is thankful to all the people for they’re over whelming help in cash and kind. The work of ZT would not be possible without the generous support of our donors around the world. We thank all of our donors and pledge to continue their great work!

Season of summer camps in schools!

Our dear donors, well-wishers and supporters, I am taking this opportunity to thank you all for the achievements and successes of our students with the help of your financial support. It is great that Zindagi Trust primary graduated children are now studying in Secondary Mainstream Schools. This is considered as a great achievement of Zindagi Trust and for this a big Thank you to our donors for making it all possible!

Now-a-days schools are off for two-month summer vacations.  During summer vacations the government & private schools management offer enriching summer programs, which are open to all.  The rationale for the summer programs is to give students exposure to outdoor activities for which they do not get a chance during the year.

This update will highlight the summer camps activities held in the month of June in the schools across Pakistan where Zindagi Trust students are studying.  Zindagi Trust students’ registration fees were paid for the summer camps in their respective schools and students were free to join camps of their interest.  Apart from the academic coaching camps the schools had organized cricket coaching, swimming, gymnastic, skating, volleyball & basketball camps as well.  The academic coordinators acknowledged the efforts of schools management for providing opportunities to our students as well to participate in and contribute in team building activities and to explore new things to live up to their full potential.

Once again Thank You for bringing smile on the faces of our children!
