ZCSS: From Dream to Actuality

ZCSS Student Wins 1st Prize in Academic Excellence In Andhra Pradesh

In 2011, Taskeen-e-Sakeena won the “E.G District Shiya Muslim Prize for Academic Excellence”, by scoring the highest marks in the Andra Pradesh District.  

Taskeen-e-Sakeena, aged 17 has been a ZCSS Student since 2009 and surprisingly she had only completed her primary education at the age of 15, due to extreme poverty.
Her Father, was in tears, as he had worked through ill health, day and night just to try and put both his daughters through school, hence why Takseen finished her primary education at the age of 15.  

He said, “I pray every day to reward ZCSS and everyone who helped….without sponsorship my daughters would not have a chance to do so well.  I am very happy for the first time in my life”

Mashallah in the two years from completing primary education, Taskeen has gone from strength to strength demonstrating that dreams and visions can be realised through not only hard work but also with the right support.  The support she received from her sponsor meant that Taskeen is well on her way to becoming a chartered Accountant and Inshallah, through this she can help others around her.  

This shows how you are helping to change the world through education.  It is a wonderful feeling to know that a ZCSS student has achieve such amazing results.  Thank you for helping and together we can make more success stories as this. Inshallah.

We have so much talent in our community but not everyone has the opportunity to grow, develop and focus it for the betterment of Islam, the community, their family or themselves.   Each and every ZCSS student has the opportunity to create their own success story and Inshallah with your sponsorship you will also be part of that.  

We are urgently looking for sponsors for 2000 students.  Each and every child deserves a chance at life, in this world and they need your help to get there and cultivate their talents and skills.

“Educate & Empower”.  The powerful words of the Vice President of The World Federation Of KSIMC, Munawer Bhai Rattansey, in a speech delivered to the community of Hyderi Islamic Centre in south London, where he launched the Ghaza and Muharram appeal.  He inspired the audience to “Be the reason for Success” and to work together in helping providing assistance to those in Gaza.

The full speech can be read below:

Alhamdulillah, students who have received assistance through the Zainabiyya Child Sponsorship Scheme (ZCSS) program have moved on to complete their education and started building careers which allow them not only to become self-sufficient and independent but also improve the lives of their families.  They are becoming the first generation in their families to receive an education and secure skilled work as a means to earn their living. They are uplifting themselves and their families from the cycle of poverty through education.

Around the world, almost 61 million children are deprived access to basic education.  In 2008, an estimate stated that 60% of these children are girls.  And within developing nations, the completion rate of primary school between the two genders is greater than 10%.  Almost 100 million girls worldwide who start primary school don’t finish and the numbers rise for secondary education where it is not possible for more than 200 million children.  The gender gap between boys and girls rises even more within the enrollment and completion of secondary school.
