Meet one of our star graduates, Natalia


Natalia joined Zindagi Trust in March 2011. Excluding class 3; she bagged the 1st position every term during her entire primary education at the Zindagi Trust Manzoor Colony School for working children. She graduated in May 2013 at the top of her class and we are pleased to share her stellar record with you.


With the support of Zindagi Trust she continued her education after finishing the non-formal primary education programme for working children. She has been enrolled in Hammad Foundation School, one of the cooperative schools of Zindagi Trust.


Natalia is very much motivated with the work of Zindagi Trust & deeply thanks her teachers for being so supportive during her initial schooling. She pays tribute to her teachers & all those who are associated with Zindagi Trust.


Natalia has a friendly nature and enjoys a good friends’ circle. The secret she shared about her studies is that she studies daily according to her schedule & never wastes time in chatting or watching TV. In her spare time she helps her siblings with their homework. She helps her mother in cooking but is not interested in cooking. She wants to grow up to be a model. She is very much concerned about her studies & wants to be a position holder in her secondary school as well.

Zindagi Trust wishes her all the best for her future!
