This is the first batch ( 24 rural girls) from the village named " Choti Bala" in which #education is introduced for the very first time. They all are given free books, bags, stationery and a local teacher to teach them from very basic concepts. It's just a start. We will start improving their living style too. Soon they will be given uniforms, shoes and other facilities. This is my initial project in collaboration with #Escuela_De_Formacian_Poltica. Gracias to Mirtha Chong from Peru

Nabila Abbas biography

Nabila Abbas is from a remote area of Pakistan, from a small tribe, where people were endowed with a dismal fate. Abbas says there was no education, awareness, technology, facility, no advancements, modern ways of life, or freedoms. As a girl in this environment, she found it terrifically challenging to dream for anything. Her surroundings oppressed the flourishing of ideas and the struggle to live consumed daily life. How would one dream for anything more? She spoke with SLP 9 Service-Learning Project) from her home in a remote area of Pakistan. Growing up in conservative tribal area, Nabila found it challenging, but essential, to break out of the limited role offered to girls in her community. With the support of her parents, Nabila has become a fierce advocate for girls, education, and rural development in Pakistan. She is also an alumna at the University of Management and Technology, Lahore. She has passed out with her bachelor degree in 2019 from the Institute of Aviation studies from UMT. She is 23 years old now. She has born in a very dismal area where there is no education, no health systems, no technology as far as we’re concerned, this NO is still endowing to her area. Living among an illiterate society (which she believes isn't their fault as they are depriving of their basic rights and facilities) and raising up being unwanted girl child by the society, she always had a dream to attain higher education. Since her early teenage, she couldn't have even understood the true meaning of education or its role in people’s lives. The girls in her town are only expected to get early marriage and that's it. She never wanted this future. She never wanted either to spoil her future staying quiet. She said NO to these norms. Up in the sky, she always used to look in the airplanes flying high. It hit her head with curiosity and later She came to know how humans can even fly if they have knowledge and education. Since her childhood, she always used to write a tagline; she was born to fly. That was her determination since childhood to attain education. Therefore, she broke all the way through darkness and embrace a light of hope inside of her. She started studying at her father's non profit school (Tahir Model High School Choti Zareen) which is the only school in her town at that time. She pursued her primary and then secondary education from there. Connecting herself to education has started changing her life and opinions. It has enabled her to think out of the box. But at the same time, she also kept pushing her friends and fellows to go for education or to go to schools. Mostly parents don't send girls to school in rural areas. Later, she shifted with her parents to a small town for her college studies. She’d always been a brilliant student who is always committed to both studies and extra curricular activities. Even though her primary education was from a very small school in a village but she didn't give up in competing with the urban students at city level. She started getting A grades in her college. She started improving both English and curriculum. Even in this small city, girls were only supposed to go for studies and then come back to home. They were not permitted to take part in sports activities. She broke this norm and initiated to go for sports. She with her friends arranged a group for girls to play sports. She managed to go playing at national level in different games like race, high jumping etc. She believes she always wanted to see girls empowered and this is how she has always been a changemaker for her fellows too. After her college life, it was time to take bachelor degrees, she opted something different that's aviation management degree. For this she'd to go to a big city and again she'd to fight all barriers of culture, language and societal norms. She couldn't even have bus fare to pay for the city. Her parents again supported her and she became able to get bachelor degree from one of the well-known Universities in Pakistan that's the University of management and technology, Lahore. In university, she initiated a trend for extra curricular activities in the field of aviation. She started with initially 5- 10 students and then end up with 500 new leaders through this forum called " Aviation Literary forum" where the focus was to build a connection among rural and urban students so that we can break social cohesion. This is how she started with her personal story of acquiring educational dream and now she is working with various international organizations (including the International Congress of Youth Voices USA, The global human projects, The conversationalist, the global network of young politicians, the international youth development society, the youth for Pakistan, National Youth assembly, Dream Equal, Zero Hour, the International association of women developments and rights, UN, the royal commonwealth society UK, Our Agenda by Argentina, YUC- Youth Under Construction by Guatemala, The comprehensive nuclear ban testing treaty organization Vienna) to implement educational reforms at rural areas, fight for gender equality, raising voice for human rights, empowering women and challenging political reforms awareness. Her only agenda is to work for people living under privilege. She is committed with various National and International organizations where she is intended to work for more innovative and creative solutions to implement educational reforms. She has the privileged being youngest speaker at UN assembly to bring the very first initiative of rural developments on the dice. Acknowledging all these social and humanitarian work, the Royal commonwealth society UK awarded her with “The Diana Award 2020” which is a highly honorary award for young people around the globe bringing positive change in this world. Also, she is awarded with “Top 40 Young Aviation professional under 40”, “International Leading Youth Award. She takes all these achievements as a result of prayers and immense support of her parents, teachers, University and above all the Almighty Allah is obviously merciful on her. “I leave behind a very beautiful message to all my youth; you people have an extra energy and passion to change this world. Take your that positive energies out for the right things at right time. “(Nabila Abbas)

Dear Nabila,
These photos tell such an important story. To see these young girls being taught by you is so heartrendingly hopeful. I see in their eyes the excitement and hope, being led by such a strong women leader who knows exactly what barriers they face, as you have lept over these barriers with the strength of your own conviction. That you have dissolved these barriers to choose your own life path, to study and succeed so deeply, and to break through the barriers of women in sports as well, show what an extraordinary leader you are. I wish you great success with fundraising for these girls to learn. With your permission can we take this call for funding to our social media sites?
Deep Sisterhood,
Tam
