Four years ago in an emigration environment, a girl named Halima was newly graduated from 12th grade. She was living without a fate. Halima belonged to a poor family. His father was tin maker. She had one brother and one small age sister. Her brother was jobless. One day Halima Came to my home and requested me to help her as she knew that I was a teacher and have Holy Quran Course. Halima requested me to provide her by financial assessments through which she gets able to join courses and continue her education. She knew Holy Quran very well. There fore, I have hired her as teacher in my Course which was belonged to me. She could pay the fee of her courses by earning salary from holy Quran Course. On the other hand, she could continue her education. After passage of some times, she got skillful in the field of English Language and Computer. She contacted one of her friend who was in Kabul. Her friend found her a job in one of NGO in Kabul. She came to Kabul. After passing the interview successfully, she was hired in her desired job. Since she was hired with a high salary, she could find a rented house for her family. She was able to pay all expenses of her family. There fore, she asked her family to shift in Kabul. When she and her mother came to my house for saying bye, she expressed lots of thanks and appreciated my supports. Halima and her family came to Kabul and could spend their life with lots of happiness and joys. After passage of some times, she admitted her brother and sister in School and Courses. Now her brother found a job and is busy in performing his duty. I thank Allah who fortunate me by having the chance of holding Halima’s hand, positively changing her and her family’s’ life for which they dreamed and building a new life for the whole family.

    The importance of a teacher is not just to teach you what is in the books but life lessons, such as giving and gratitude. Thanks for giving these lessons to Halima and others to. We, as a global network wanting to see women independent and thrive in their communities, are grateful to you.

    God bless you Sabera for been a positive influence in Halima's life. What we make happen for others, God will surely make happen for us. Let us be the change we want to see in the world. By holding Halima's hand, you changed the lives of her family and generation as it were.
