Bio

About Me

I live in a village of Pakistan, this is a very big village with population of around ten thousand there are many people who are educated, but this education did not make a big difference, still most girls are not allowed to get education and even if they are allowed they do not know when will be forced to stop going to school, still girls are getting married as young as 12 years old. Still they have no awareness of their rights, and still they have no choice, to speak, to take a stand for anything which they think is not correct still they have no right to ask a question but they are required to follow only without asking anything. So at the age of 13 I took a stand to change this situation, I started a free school in the court yard of my home and 1997 I did not only taught thousands of girls but empowered even more by teaching them skills of computer, stitching, Party and bridle make up, hair cutting, English language, Martial Arts, health awareness, self-defense techniques, not only this but I have made a contract with an organization to give free skills training to the men of our area, along with this I got two Master degrees from the University of the Punjab with self-studies as a PVT student. I do a full time job and in evenings I teach my students, I have hired teachers as well for all departments whom I pay from my own salary. all of these services are being provided free since day one and purpose is to raise the Status of Women through Education and Empowerment.
