Updates on Mainstream Secondary School Education

We are very obliged to our donors, supporters and well-wishers from all walks of life, who maintain an interest in supporting our noble cause. With heartfelt gratitude thank to each one of you for extending support to Zindagi Trust projects. Children studying in mainstream secondary education are very grateful for the support that you all are providing them in getting education.

Todays' update will highlight about Irfan & his family. Irfan is a student of grade 6 in a private school of Rawalpindi region.

About Irfan

Irfan is brilliant graduate of Chah Sultan School, run by Zindagi Trust. After his father left his job due to an illness that confined him to his bed, Irfan and his brother started working at a general store to make ends meet. This meant that he could not go to a regular school.

His father was a school teacher before his health rendered him unemployed, yet his interest in education brought Irfan to a Zindagi Trust primary school for working children. Irfan was a keen student in school throughout his time at the school until he graduated in Class 5.

After graduation from Zindagi Trust's non-formal primary education programme, he was placed in a mainstream school called M.C. Boys High School in Millat Colony, Rawalpindi, where he is currently studying in Class 6.

Irfan continues to be a model student and stood 4th in his last exams. All his teachers are very happy with his performance and his attitude. His class teacher says that Irfan is intelligent and punctual, and that his academic performance is seeing a steady improvement. Irfan takes his studies seriously and spends his evenings revising his work with his father. His favourite subject is science and he wants to be a pilot when he grows up.
