Zindagi Trust

Our mission is two-part: 1) To provide non-formal primary education through a creative, well-designed curriculum to Pakistan's underprivileged working children, thus empowering them to become responsible citizens as well as readying them for vocational or secondary education. 2) To assist the Government of Pakistan in reforming state schools and curricula so as to bring them at par with the challenges of present time, so that the majority of the country's youth that studies in them can get an equal opportunity at a bright future.
Educating 1800 child workers in Pakistan
 
Zindagi Trust's "I Am Paid to Learn" programme educates children who work in the urban slums of Pakistan. With 1800 students in schools across Pakistan, a 2.2-year accelerated primary education course is taught to the children who spend most of their days toiling in car-repair shops & other general stores in Lahore and Rawalpindi. The programme also sponsors the continuing education of top graduates who are encouraged to enroll in mainstream secondary schools. project reportread updates from the field
Send 50 Pakistani child workers to high school
 
24 million children are out of school in Pakistan. Many work to support their families. We recruit such children from urban slums and lead them through an accelerated primary education course. The top graduates from this two-year course are placed in mainstream secondary schools, their fees paid and their academic and personal progress monitored until they complete high school. 550 students are currently enrolled in secondary schools in Karachi, Lahore and Rawalpindi under this program. project reportread updates from the field
Breakfast for KG school-children in Pakistan
 
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. project reportread updates from the field
