The past couple of months from October 2022 to February 2023 have seen tremendous progress for the two adopted government schools of Zindagi Trust.
Following a period of engaging the students vigorously in extracurricular activities such as the summer camp and digital safety workshops, the emphasis shifted solely towards academics and providing students ample time to focus on achieving well in their end of term exams.
Zindagi Trust’s professional development team utilised this time to evaluate teachers’ performance by conducting observation cycles, supporting the teachers where required through a needs analysis and formulating a plan for improvement on the pedagogy front by analysing their findings.
Simultaneously, efforts are underway in improving the internal mechanism of child safety and protection in the schools. To support this, a professional clinical psychologist with extensive experience in the domain of child safety has been onboarded for consultancy, leading trainings and restructuring the mechanism towards utmost efficacy.
In addition to this, keeping true to its vision of promoting and where possible-delivering quality education throughout the schools of Pakistan, Zindagi Trust has partnered with different organisations contributing to the same. In partnership with STEAM Pakistan, Zindagi Trust is currently assiting the development of an Arts program for government schools. As part of this program, the lessons designed will be personally catered to the needs of those schools that do not have prior access to art education or professional teachers to establish the program.
Similarly, in partnership with Tabadalab, Zindagi Trust is helping the execution of a mass digital-educational campaign involving both students and parents encouraging a healthy dialouge between the two parties regarding students’ academic journey.
In collaboration with Meta, an exclusive online follow-up session on child safety mechanisms was held in January 2023 for selected representatives from various NGOs, stakeholders actively involved in child welfare rights, and institutions working directly with children. The session was a continuation of a policy dialouge held in mid-2022 and emphasized the importance of working together as a community to ensure that children in Pakistan have access to safe and appropriate digital resources.
At the schools, to celebrate the conclusion of exams and to provide a break from the traditional classroom setting, students were taken for field trips that were both informative and entertaining. The younger grade students embarked on a delightful fieldtrip to the zoo, observing and learning about the diverse array of animals and their habitats. The middle and senior grades visited the State Bank of Pakistan where they gained valuable insights into the workings of the financial system, the role of banks in the economy and the importance of financial literacy and responsibility.
Overall, Zindagi Trust has made great strides in the last five months and we are looking forward to even more progress in the coming months.
