When Nagina Bibi got married she had studied up to Class Four only and was dependent on others to read a letter and was not even able to sign a document. Realizing the importance of education she made her husband promise that their children would be sent to school. All four of her children, two girls and two boys, did go to school, but they had to trudge a long way to reach school and go even further to get to college.
Nagina Bibi did not stop lobbying for her cause of education for the children of her village. When the opportunity came, and DIL was introduced to the community members, Nagina Bibi immediately offered her land for the school building in Chatro. Her daughter has now been appointed the Head Teacher, one of the few educated girls in the village and the foundations for the new school building on Nagina Bibi’s donated land has just been laid. Meanwhile the Nursery and Grade One have been started in Nagina Bibi’s house and 48 children have been enrolled. Once the school building is ready, the children will move to their permanent school and Nagina Bibi can sit on the hill behind her house, smile and think.
