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.
