Holding hand

During the war in Afghanistan all afghans had criticle situation .Most of them became refugee to neighbor countries of Afghanistan and they had very bad life .
When I was student in high school in Peshawar .I had a neighbor she was an afghan refugee .Her father and brothers were jobless ,for study in school we had to pay fee Rs.50 every month , she was not able to pay . I talked to her family and I insist her to continue her study , her family didn’t want because they couldn’t afford I convinced them that I will pay her fee.Aalthough it was not that much amount but I was helping her by paying her monthly fee . She became my classmate and was so delight because she was talented and wanted to continue her education ,so about three years I was paying her fee .
She became my close friend and after school alsoI have contact with her .
Throgh this she can finish her high school and now she is working in a NGO in Kabul .

women rising

Dearest Fawzia,

Thank you for sharing your story. From reading your story, and the stories of other women in our community from Afghanistan, I get a deep sense of compassion - of sisterhood - and of support amongst the women in your country. A sense of urging the women around you - your neighbors - to reach their potential, and when they don't have the means, you generously provide for them. And I get the sense that it's not so much generosity as a deep yearning within your heart to see women in Afghanistan succeed and prove that you are brilliant, and beautiful and powerful and poised to not only lead your country, but to love and support each willing soul along the way.

I am so moved by your story.

In friendship,
Jade

Together you will Shine

Hello Fawzia,

I feel moved and inspired by your story of friendship, encouragement, support, and love. Your belief in the potential of another human being and your "holding hands" as you moved forward as classmates and companions, is a beautiful image. Education is a powerful bridge to the future, and I admire you both so very, very much.

In Kindness,
Gretchen
