Education for all

Yesterday I came across a story about a very daring lady of Tehsil Matta in one of the esteemed dailies. It was about her efforts to run a school for girls in the area even though the militants were torching and bombing the school buildings particularly of girls.

Gul-e-Khandana is running a primary school, where she herself got the primary education. She explained that when the terrorist came to burn her school, I said burn me first and then my school. Lucky for her they went back. However, when the war intensified in Swat, she had to leave with her family. When she came back, she once again started the school with the help of KPK Rural Support Program and other government and international agencies. She is perhaps the bravest woman of this area, who

without fearing the heinous Taliban continued her efforts for educating the girls of her area.
