Three kilometres from the main town of Budgam lies a mountainous village situated right in the middle of apple orchids, waterfalls and paddy fields. It's green everywhere and a teeny tiny mud road leads the way into the village. Following the same path we reach the only middle school of the village. It’s one o’ clock and the school has no children. It’s their exam time, we are told.

Hello Baseera -

Your story of Razia powerfully conveys her tenacity to achieve her dreams.  She was the first person in her village to go to and graduate from college - what an achievement, especially since she had to go there on foot.

By communicating her story, we understand what she is doing to bring education to the children of her area, especially the girls who need it so very much.
