Meet Javeria one of the stars from our schools

Javeria at work

Javeria is studying in the 5th grade in Zindagi Trust's Paid to Learn School for working children in Manzoor Colony. During her primary schooling here, she has consciously worked hard and showed remarkable academic progress. At a very young age, Javera has realized the value of hard work in enabling one to succeed and charms her teachers with statements such as "there is no substitute for hard work!"

     

Javeria belongs to a Punjabi family. Her father is a rickshaw driver. The eldest in her family, she coaches her siblings and her neighbors in the evenings. Apart from teaching, she wants to teach personal skills to groom the children of her community - most of whom are street children. Learning from her teachers, she interacts with her own "students" by using polite words like ‘Please’ ‘Thank You’ to teach them how to be polite and soft-spoken.

Javeria has a clear passion for education and takes her studies seriously. She has maintained an excellent record at school, a summary of which is as follows:

 

  •          Kindergarten:  2nd Position by 97% and attendance was 80% in her class.
  •          Class One: 2nd Position by 96% and attendance was 76% in her class.
  •          Class Two: 1stPosition by 98% and attendance was 81% in her class.
  •          Class Three: 1st Position by 94% and attendance 72%  in her class.
  •          Class Four:  1stPosition by 91% and attendance 84% in her class.   

Javeria also loves to read and her favourite kind of book is one which helps her travel the world through words and stories. Her future plans involve teaching at the same  Zindagi Trust school where she is studying now. She also wants to examine the basis of children learning, an impressive research goal for a fifth-grader.

She spends some time at home every day doing embroidery till the wee hours, to help with the household income. She never takes things granted. A committed and dedicated student, she takes pride of being the first child in her family to go to school and later opened the door for rest of the children of her family to receive an education. It is also a great  achievement of Zindagi Trust’s academic team who motivated her  family to send their daughters and sons to Zindagi Trust school.  We wish her all the best and hope that Javeria and other bright young children like her continue to get such opportunities through your support.
