World Pulse IT Centers in Pakistan

Sister Zeph
Posted January 11, 2019 from Pakistan

I am Sister Zeph working in rural Pakistan since two decades to educate and empower women. I started my first school in courtyard of my house in 1997 and then for almost 14 years I kept teaching there. Life was really tough there was no hope. Even my own friends would make my fun by saying one day I will cry to have someone to marry me but then time will be passed and no one will come to marry me because final destination of a woman is to have children and a husband and I was losing the right time according to them. Because what I was doing it was not showing any difference, it was too slow, I was not able to make a really big difference. 

I was worried all the time, my students had a great bonding with me and because of that love they did not want to leave my school but for how long I could keep them in such a school which did not have even a roof on their heads to keep them safe from the burning sun or the unstoppable rain. But it would cost a lot of money to have a roof. Although I was doing a full time job to support my free school but it was not enough to make or even to take a school building on rent. 

Then I joined world Pulse and things started changing, I shared my story here and won Lynn Syms Global prize, people started knowing me, they started following my work on social media and help me a lot. 

I bought own small piece of land, made a two rooms building in it, we started teaching skills like stitching, IT and make up to our students, they learn self-defense techniques, we were able to arrange employment for 15 women, we made a proper school with all the facilities for 200 students, we started helping burn victim girls whose parents leave them to die because they are girls and we were able to buy a van for the school. 

And all this started through world Pulse. World Pulse gave me a liberty to say whatever was in my heart and how I ever I wanted to say. it does not matter if I cannot arrange the words properly, If I am not proficient in English, World Pulse only wants to hear my story and wants to open its arms to hug me and to make me realize I my worth as a woman.

I love world pulse the most that's why we have dedicated both of our IT centers to World Pulse where hundreds of more young ladies will learn to use IT, they will join world Pulse and will share their unheard stories here. Also from this month we are going to start a campaign to spread the word about World Pulse in 50 villages of Pakistan so that all women of Pakistan who think there is no one to help them or to listen to them. They can know they are not alone and they can be heard. They just have to speak and World Pulse is there to lift them up.

Love your story. Keep teaching independence to all women. It helps family violence sexual abuse and all forms of crime against women.

Sister Zeph, fourteen years in a courtyard with young girls and women under scorching sun and unrelenting rain did not dim your light. That is love and humanity. And love should be rewarded with more love, love and love. I am so thrilled to observe the progress Zephaniah Free Education is making in terms of facilities, enhanced number of students, extra curricular activities, most of all the unfortunate children like Meerab who have been saved by you. May the world increasingly become aware of your contribution to Pakistan and girls and women . Sending you love from India, Urmila Chanam
