Here is a link to an article about Razia’s work for the Zabuli Girls School. In February, a bunch of Kabulites organized a fashion show for the school. We raised enough to sustain the school for a few more months, ANDDDD…there are plans to build roof-top solar panels, with the hope that with electricity, the students can be given computer and internet lessons.
Changing one story doesn’t necessarily alter that whole, but it perhaps adds colour to a part of it, sheds light on an area wallowing in darkness “I want to tell the world that I’m hopeful about Afghanistan’s future,” says the 67-year old Kabul native and women’s rights activist. “I wouldn’t have come back here if I wasn’t.”

We will organize a trip to the school soon (when it has stopped snowing) But anyone who wants to come, ping me! so I can organize something soon.
Keep forwarding, keep smiling.
