Offer: Humaira the Dreamcatcher

Only 26 percent of women in Pakistan are literate. Many families do not educate their daughters because of societal and religious pressures, and in the last 6 years Islamic militants have blown up more than 600 schools across the country, forcing thousands of women to stay at home. Humaira: The Dream Catcher chronicles the life of a young woman who is fighting to educate girls in her community. Through sheer determination, she has set up a school that now educates over 1200 children, each for one cent a day.
