There has never been a school for girls in the village of Deh Subz, Afghanistan. Afghan-American Razia Jan set out to change that. In 2009, despite pressure to educate boys and threats to ruin the school, the Zabuli Education Center opened a school to educate 200 girls. Razia’s hope is to make life a little easier, even for a few hours a day, for the girls who have to work so hard at such a young age. “Once you learn something, nobody can take that away from you.”
October 11, 2012 marked the inaugural commemoration of the International Day of the Girl Child – a new global observance to highlight the importance of empowering girls and ensuring their human rights. Educating girls provides them a foundation for a better life.
