I have known Sister Zeph for many years now. I am in awe of all that Sister Zeph is doing on a daily basis. It is remarkable all that she has accomplished. Sister Zeph is touching the lives of so many people daily, in so many ways. Those that know Sister Zeph love her and she returns that love by sharing with the world all the love she is giving to the children in her school and to her community. Sister Zeph gives so much of herself every day to her students, to Eva, the abandoned baby she rescued and adopted, and to the burn victims that she has rescued and helped get the medical attention they required to heal from the terrible burns they suffered from.
Sister Zeph touches the hearts of everyone she encounters. Her wisdom, patience, determination and her intention to empower all her students, to give them the education and skills training they need to transform their lives, and her absolution commitment to all she does, is exactly what is creating the positive change in the region in Pakistan where she lives and has her school.
Though she has faced danger to herself and her family from men in her region who don't understand that girls have the same value as boys, Sister Zeph stands strong, courageous and she refuses to let anyone intimidate her or slow her down. To her many social media followers, Sister Zeph has done a tremendous job of touching hearts, raising awareness of the many issues that girls and women are dealing with in Pakistan, proving that education and skills training is making life better, not only for individuals, but for the families of her students and the community, proving that gender equality is the key to a transformed world.
In the time that I have known her, Sister Zeph has initiated a computer learning center, teaching and connecting her students and even men and women in her community, to technology that enhances their lives and connects them to the world. She has also expanded her school and is touching the lives even more children daily.
Everyone who knows Sister Zeph is inspired by her efforts to make our world a better place. Sister Zeph is a bright light in the world and she certainly deserves the World Pulse Spirit Award
