Shehzad Roy gets the Education Excellence Award from President Arif Alvi.

Shehzad Roy, a philanthropist and education worker, was given the Education Excellence Award by President Arif Alvi for his work to improve education and help children.

The award was given out at a gathering at the Aiwan-e-Sadar that was put on by the Rawalpindi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RCCI).

A few other educators also got the award, including Dr. Muhammad Amjad Saqib, who is in charge of the Akhuwat Foundation.

Roy is a singer, the founder and head of Zindagi Trust, and he has been honoured with the Tamgha-e-Imtiaz, the Sitara-e-Eisaar, and the Sitara-e-Imtiaz for his outstanding service to the country.

Because of how hard he worked, the National Assembly made it illegal to hit children. Before that, it was okay to hit children in good faith.

Due to the hard work of Aahung and Zindagi Trust, Ahung’s curriculum of life skills-based education (LSBE) was added to Sindh’s school curriculum. This will possibly keep millions of children from being abused.

The Sindh government approved a new way to evaluate government teachers’ performance that was made by Zindagi Trust. Instead of the generic metrics of the Annual Confidential Report (ACR), which are used for all civil servants, teachers will now be judged on things like student-centered teaching and active classroom management.

Roy is putting the finishing touches on an online course on reproductive health that was made by the National Committee for Maternal and Neonatal Health. He is an advocate for family planning and population for the Ministry of National Health Services, Regulations, and Coordination.

The course will be tied to the National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra). This means that any couple who wants to get their nikkah nama registered with Nadra will have to finish this course.

This will teach couples a lot more about timing, birth control, and mother and child health, and it will also have an effect on population growth.
