Dr. Pasha explained that Zindagi Trust's approach to intervention design was centered on developing a comprehensive understanding of the students and their needs. This involved working closely with teachers, parents, and community members to identify the root causes of academic and behavioral issues, as well as the strengths and resources available in the community.
