We have often heard, give up a cup of coffee to help a child, but do we do it? Perhaps we think that such a small contribution won’t make a difference, or maybe we tell ourselves we will get to it but don’t or we tell ourselves someone else will do it so we don’t have to.
But what if you did?

All over the world, there are families that are barely able to put food on the table, let alone afford an education for their children. That’s where supporters of ZCSS come in. Through the Zainabiyya Child Sponsorship Scheme (ZCSS) children have the opportunity to learn and be educated. They have the chance to obtain the foundation to make a better future for themselves and their families.
And all this is possible through sponsorships from people like you.
Meet some of the individuals you have helped to build a brighter tomorrow:
Mirza Zulfequar Ali Baig
Mirza is one of three brothers, and the only one to be fortunate enough to acquire an education. His father, a driver with a meager salary was unable to meet the educational expenses of his children. Mirza’s two younger brothers work as a mechanic and a carpenter to assist their father with household expenses.
After his father approached ZCSS for assistance, Mirza was sponsored from Kindergarten to Professional Education. He has successfully completed his B. Tech and may be the first generation in his family to attend an educational institution. Mirza says, “I don’t think I’d be anywhere close to where I am now if I didn’t have the support of The World Federation through ZCSS”. Mirza’s efforts to achieve academic excellence are commendable.
Ata Abbas’s father was working in a hotel and was earning very little. The family had to struggle very hard to earn enough to survive. Ata Abbas wanted to become a Computer Engineer and so opted for B.E. with Computer Science and Engineering. Through the generous support of The World Federation through ZCSS, he was able to complete the course successfully. He is now working with ICICI Phone Banking, and is settled in his career and is successfully supporting his family.
Sponsoring a child through ZCSS undoubtedly begins a domino effect that carries over ten fold. When you help educate a child, you are helping educate a nation. Let’s give education to everyone, because everyone deserves a chance to learn.
Zainabiyya Child Sponsorship Scheme works in Kenya, Tanzania, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Haiti. We sponsor over 5000 students in six countries ranging from Kindergarten to University Education.
