Sponsoring secondary school for working children



Zindagi Trust having provided primary education to working children in the last 8 years has now expanded the scope where the successful graduates will acquire secondary education.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

19 million children in Pakistan cannot afford school. Some of them are so poor that they cannot afford to go to school even if it were free. They spend their days working in the streets, as food vendors, cleaners, car mechanics, etc. Our "Educating 2800 child workers" project brings such children to school for a primary education programme, but it doesn't guarantee them a better job nor a facility to continuing education upon graduation.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project will sponsor the secondary education of those graduates of the primary education programme for child workers who have shown promise during their 2.2 years of primary schooling. All their major expenses from attendance fees to books will be met by Zindagi Trust and their progress will be followed closely. This will give an opportunity to those students with the desire and aptitude for higher education to be able to achieve their dreams and make a real investment in their future.

Potential Long Term Impact

- Increase the literacy rate of Pakistan. - Improve future job prospects of children from urban slums - Improve the standards of living for children and their families in urban slums - Increase school enrollment in urban slums by making communities realize the value of education
