There has never been a school for girls in the village of Deh Subz, Afghanistan. Afghan-American Razia Jan set out to change that. In 2009, despite pressure to educate boys and threats to ruin the school, the Zabuli Education Center opened a school to educate 200 girls. Razia’s hope is to make life a little easier, even for a few hours a day, for the girls who have to work so hard at such a young age. “Once you learn something, nobody can take that away from you.”
Learn more about Razia Jan’s organisation Razia’s Ray of Hope Foundation and the work they are doing to improve the lives of girls through community-based education.
