A message from our new Project Leader

Hello from the Breakfast Programme!


Our project has been led by our non-profit staff at the school so far, but starting this term in August the responsibility has been assigned to one of the senior school teachers, Shazia Akbar Ali. We have been pleased with Shazia’s hard work and commitment to the children and the school and hope that this new role will give her greater ownership of a project she helped start. Here’s a message from her in her own words:


My name is Shazia and I’m a kindergarten teacher at the SMB Fatima Jinnah Government Girls School. I have been working in this school for 17 years. There are many students from very low-income families studying in this school. A few years ago when I used to see the children in kindergarten who appeared to be ill or slow it would inevitably turn out that they had come to school without having breakfast. Encountering such a child would be painful and I would usually buy them biscuits or something. When I told Miss Rafia about these children, she started a breakfast programme for them.


In the beginning, there were 50 students in kindergarten. That number has now grown to almost 300 children, all of whom are given a breakfast of fruit, noodles, milk and a slice of bread, etc. I consider this to be a complete breakfast and feel that the KG children stay healthy and are more happily focused on their studies now.


I am sharing some pictures of a new breakfast room that we have added to accommodate the larger class size. You can see that some of our students like apples and milk more than others. J


I pray for the entire staff of Zindagi Trust who work with heart, passion and happiness for these poor children and hope God gives them all strength and happiness. I would also like to thank all of you donors for your continued support – none of this would be possible without you!
