A father name Mia khan sets an example how important it is to educate the daughters

Every day, girls face hurdles to education caused by poverty, cultural norms, poor infrastructure, violence. Afghanistan’s government provides fewer schools for girls than boys at both the primary and secondary levels. But if parents decided to educate their daughters no hurdles stopped them.

A man name Mia khan who is the native of central Sharana of Paktika province set an example for all the parents that the education of girls is very important. He daily travels 12 kilometers on his bike and took his daughter to school and wait for hours for the school’s dismissal bell to take his daughter back home.

He said: “I am illiterate, and I live on a daily wage, but my daughters’ education is very valuable to me because there is no female doctor in our area. It is my greatest desire to educate my daughters like my sons”.

His daughters are enrolled in Nooraniya school which is run by the Swedish community for Afghanistan.

Mia’s daughter said: “I am so happy that I study, I am in grade six this year. My dad or brother brings us on a motorcycle every day to the school and when we leave, he brings us home again.”

Mia khan has three daughters and three of them are enrolled in Nooraniya school. Two of them are in sixth grade and one is in fifth grade.

Mia Khan said that he choose this school for his daughter because of its quality content. Despite the cultural limitation this type of example show the positive signs of cultural change.

There are almost 220 girls are currently enrolled in Nooraniya school up to sixth grade. The Swedish Committee for Afghanistan has set up hundreds of community-based classes/schools in various areas of Paktika province, with the majority of students being girls.

Netizens praised Mia khan and appreciate his struggles for the education of his daughters.
