Graduates star in mainstream schools

We recently received the annual results of the two mainstream secondary schools in Karachi where our top graduates from our Paid to Learn primary education programme for working children were placed. Our graduates are doing well in their new schools and showed excellent results. At the Hammad Foundation Secondary School, three of our graduates bagged a Top 3 position in their class, a tremendous achievement given that these working children, with barely two years of informal education under their belts, were now competing with students who have been in a private school all their life.

The school’s annual prize distribution ceremony was held at the Gujjar Hall in Manzoor Colony where our Academic Coordinator, Iqbal Ahmed, was invited to see the progress of our graduates and also to present awards to 35 best students, out of whom our 3 Zindagi Trust stars were as follows:

1.      Anila daughter of Nadeem of Class 8 stood 2nd out of 20 students
2.      Samreen daughter of Abdul Razzaq of class 6 stood 3rd out of 25 students
3.      Attiya daughter of Shahid Ali of class 6 stood 2nd out of 25 students

At Al-Shams Grammar School too, our graduates did a great job. Khanzaib & Rashid passed class 8 with flying colours: Khanzaib stood 2nd and Rashid stood 3rd in a class of 18 students. Sana, a student of Class 7, stood 1st in her class of 20 students. All three of these students were position-holders throughout their time at Zindagi Trust’s non-formal school and we are delighted to see that they continue to flourish in the new environment at their mainstream school.
