Officials said that during the school visit, Shehzad Roy, a renowned singer and social activist, representing Zindagi Trust, a non-governmental organisation that has adopted the Khatoon-e-Pakistan Government School for Girls, gave a briefing to the chief secretary.

He further highlighted the collaborative effort between the Sindh government and Zindagi Trust to run the school. Shahzad Roy also informed the chief secretary about the teaching licence initiative, mentioning that Sindh is the first province in Pakistan where teaching licences have been issued.
