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.
