Hear about Zindagi Trust in the words of our supporters, volunteers, as well as the students and teachers we work with.
Ambreen Hameed, Teacher
Munawar Jahan, Volunteer
Munawar Jahan, a private tutor for several years as well as a certified Montessori teacher/trainer, is a passionate volunteer who serves full-time as the coordinator for the Kindergarten section at our Fatima Jinnah School.
Ever since her children finished their education, she became committed to devoting her skills and experience to community service to “pay back my debt to my country.” She liked what her son told her about Zindagi Trust’s work and after she saw the website, she contacted our office to schedule a meeting to explore how she could contribute. We still remember her enthusiasm at that first meeting and are happy to report it has not waned.
She is in every morning to oversee teachers and plan interesting activities for the children based upon Montessori principles. She has also helped develop a materials room stocked with local tools for educating the young minds in a creative way.
Munawar believes Pakistan’s real revolution will be universal education, which will itself lead to an improvement in healthcare and the economy. “I work with these children because they are Pakistan’s treasure,” she says. You and them both, Munawar—hats off to you!
