Kainat Amin graduated in the top 10% of the class from
Zindagi Trust's primary education programme for working
children. As a reward for her great academic performance,
Zindagi Trust pledged financial support for Kainat's continuting
education. She was placed in the 6th grade at the Government
Girls High School of Tench Bhata, Rawalpindi where she continues
to flourish sa a student.
A star student at our non-formal school for children forced
to work, she has maintained her good academic record at
her new school, this time competing well against "regular"
children in a mainstream school. She obtained the 4th position
in the Annual Examination and was promoted to the 7th grade.
Her teachers are very happy with her. Her class teacher
wrote in her monthly student evaluation report that Kainat
was a willing and active student who performed well in all
class activities. She is doing well at Science and Mathematics
and is also a good player of cricket. Kainat is confident
that her hard work and eagerness will help her achieve her
ambition in life: to serve her people as a doctor.
Kainat lives with her parents, one brother and three sisters
in a humble neighbourhood. Her parents work on daily wages
but are striving hard to make their children's dreams come
true. Kainat is a practical girl - she realizes her family
financial issues and is hopeful for a brighter future. She
is thankful and proud of Zindagi Trust for supporting her
and many other "Paid to Learn" graduates in achieving
their goals in life and becoming better citizens of Pakistan.
