‘An Educated Girl will change the world’

Asia Times coverage of the event

Many Members of the Ladies Wing and students from different schools were present. Experienced members and educationalists from the ZFI Ladies Wing shared their views with the audience.

• Mrs. Mamdooha Majid- Executive Member of All India Muslim Personal Law Board told how she started her journey of higher education after the age of 30 and got the position in her career which she never expected. She further told the students that age and family are not the barriers to take the education, You can achieve what you want if you have the courage.

• Mrs. Rabia Abbasi- Ex. Principal of Shafiq Memorial School, Delhi, a Psychology Teacher, explained how can education improve the mentality and the personality of a human being.

• Mrs. Nayab Alvi - Retired Central Govt. Officer shared her story how she completed her education in a orthodox family and small town. Her father was also criticised by other family members and people of town for sending his daughter to college, But she continued her education despite all the hurdles and made her mark tremendously.

• Mrs. Zainab Ahsan- Associate at FINOCRACY said that we have to change our mind set that higher education is not a necessity for girls as they have to take care of their families. She suggested that we should educate the girls as well as counsel their parents to pursue higher education.

• Mrs. Shazia Hoda - Member of Rahbar Educational & Welfare Trust told the audience that she can provide free classes to all the interested students and encouraged the girls to continue their education.

This was followed by a lively Q & A session.
