Drawing on insights gained from our Pilot Projects for School Reform, we push for amendments to national and provincial policies and laws to enhance the quality of public schools in Pakistan. To achieve this goal, we focus our advocacy initiatives on:
Advocating to policy-makers is crucial as they have the power to enact laws and policies that can improve education in Pakistan.
Bureaucrats are responsible for implementing policies and programs. Advocating to them can ensure effective implementation of education reforms.
Government stakeholders have a vested interest in the success of education in Pakistan. Advocating to them can help align their interests with education reform efforts.
The media and press have the ability to shape public opinion. Advocating to them can help raise awareness and generate support for education reform in Pakistan.
As a result of extensive advocacy by Zindagi Trust, a historic ban on corporal punishment of children was implemented in Pakistan's Capital Islamabad and Sindh, creating safer and more compassionate environments for children.
With support from Zindagi Trust, Aahung's Life-Skills Based Education (LSBE) Curriculum was adopted in Sindh and Balochistan, empowering children to protect themselves and promoting their well-being.
Zindagi Trust advocated for merging government schools sharing buildings or compounds, aiming to improve education quality and efficiency by reorganizing and strengthening them as a single entity.
Zindagi Trust advocated for SMB Fatima Jinnah Government School to pilot the use of textbooks other than Sindh Textbook Board Books, aiming to assess their effectiveness for future policy consideration.
We are currently advocating for the following goals to help Pakistan's children learn better, live safer lives, and reach their true potential:
Advocating for a Child Protection Policy is vital to protect children, prevent abuse, and ensure their overall well-being and rights.
This is important to foster creativity, critical thinking, Life-Skills, and holistic education for comprehensive and well-rounded learning.
To protect children from online threats, cyberbullying, and privacy breaches, necessitating advocacy for safe and responsible digital practices.
To ensure equal opportunities, protection from discrimination, and a safe environment, warranting advocacy for gender equality and rights.
