Wadhnoor crying out for a middle school

An Alif Ailaan Contributor

Malik Faizullah is one of the most trusted community member of the Wadhnoor. He’s one of the elders who unites the community in case of disputes.

“We have only one primary school for girls in our village of 500 houses. Most of our girls leave school after finishing their primary school as there is no middle or high school in in our community,” says Malik Faizullah

If it weren’t for education …
Our school comprised a mud-plastered room donated by a villager

“You are seeing what is happening to girls aged 5/6 years in our country. How can we send our girls aged 12-15 to get education to the schools which are more than 20km away from our village? They leave school and sit at home. If we had any school, all our girls would have attended.”
