Work for Peace During The Flood in Pakistan
“When I was 12 years old (during School Life),” writes Kaiant Khan, “our village Nowshehra KPK, Pakistan was flooded. This flood destroyed our homes, schools and everything very badly. When i saw school bags and books and toys of children’s in flood first I feel too much hurt but an aim developed in me that time. I stand up and wish rebuild our schools.
Letter of Intent
“With the help of some government’s institutions and with the help of my Father i do this, I provided school bags and school books and toys to the children, re furbished and reopened Schools and convince the children to get education for their better future. I faced too much problems that time, first of all i was just 12 years old, I started a campaign door to door to aware the people of different villages to provide their children education for the bright future of their children specially i started this campaign for girls. My main agenda was to provide them education.
“I am also a sports girl and it was very difficult to continue my game
but i spent my mostly time to this Campaign. i am still a Junior Tennis Player of Pakistan but i spend my mostly time to working for Peace and for women rights. i have also faced too much critical financial issues, but I am still working. During this campaign i observed that every 2nd girl in village is a prisoner in her own home. Her parents don’t allow her to go out and go to school. Basically i stand up for those Prisoners girls who are prisoner in their own houses.
“That was very difficult but i do, and still i am working. I also received Threats day by day but i don’t afraid form any thing else. i don’t care any thing, i am still continuing my mission. I know i don’t have a long life, but its my wish to make a girl strong even she’s belong to any country of the world.
“Those Children who don’t have financial support for education, they don’t get education and they are converted in to criminal works, using of drugs, I wish to change their mind to get the education for their bright future. Their are a lots of hotels in Pirwadhai, in these hotels majorities of employees are children and youngsters, who are using as a sweeper and wash the dishes, and using in sexual harassment, when i saw these cases i can’t stop my Tears, I wish to see them independent. These children are mostly belongs to poor families. The parents who don’t have financial support they don’t sent their children to school to get education, they sent their children for labor but they don’t know their the employers misuse their child’s.
“So my basic aim is how to free these children on their choice, I have surveyed. Most want to study but due to lack of financial issue they can’t.”
