In this report we are going to share story of Ms. Ruqia in her own words. It is a real story but names of the characters are changed.
“Salam! My name is Ruqia Bibi, I am 37 years old and I live in village Bola, District Khushab. We are a poor family. My husband is a peasant and I am a house wife. We have one daughter and two sons. My two sons are going to a public school but my daughter who is 9 year of age started education in boy’s school but due to cultural hinders she was forced to stop school after completion of class 2. She is very shining star and light in her eyes shows the dream she has but I surrendered to cultural norms and we were not having financial resources to send her in a city school. One day Ms. Shakila Nasir program officer SDA Khushab came to me and she told me that she is aware about issue my daughter. She called my daughter and told her the happiest news to go with her to Rising Sun School. I came to know that education for girls is free in this school and they will manage uniform and books expense as well. Mt daughter is in Rising Sun School. They are very devoted people and working with missionary zest. Environment is very friendly and I used to visit school frequently. They love us and we reciprocate the same. This school is like our home where poor girls are getting free education. My husband and I are very satisfied that our sweet daughter has restarted education. When we stopped her education it was like a burden on our souls that we had broken the dreams of our daughter and we were not able to help her due to limited financial resources. I am also being told that philanthropist around the globe help the school to continue its free service. I thank you all those who are supporting for this Nobel cause. There even single penny keeps the eyes shining of poor girls of the school.”
