Summary

Zindagi Trust has introduced a school breakfast program at the SMB Fatima Jinnah School which caters to low-income neighbourhoods. Most of these children come to school without breakfast and are malnourished and unable to focus on their lessons. We aim to reverse that and by starting off their day with a nutritious breakfast.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Zindagi Trust has taken over management of SMB Fatima Jinnah Government Girls School with a view to reforming education therein, where approximately 250 children are enrolled in Kindergarten classes. Most children come from families with meager resources, which means they come to school without breakfast and thus suffer from low energy levels in the classroom. This is an unhealthy practice and retards the desired progress in the learning process.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project gives the Kindergarten students a breakfast at school every morning to make them active and prepare them for the day's academic and other school-related challenges. Children also learn table manners, good nutritional habits, and the importance of a well-balanced diet.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project would not only attract children towards education in areas where enrollment is an issue, but also cover their needs of a healthy diet thus enhancing their levels of comprehension. The school is considered a model school by the government so it is hoped the practice of offering breakfast to children from low-income neighbourhoods is eventually adopted and supported by the government of Pakistan, hence making an impact on the lives of hundreds of children in addition to the 250 here.
