I was about 16 years old when I started doing a job to fulfill the expenses of Zephaniah free education, there was a time when I was studying in 9th grade and for teaching in a street school , I was being paid $60 a month, then time changed and I got a good job in a bigger organization, my friends have been supporting from last two years too, But still I need more funds to keep doing my work, because now there are so many girls who are coming to join the school. My colleague in my office who has same designation and has joined the organization just a few month before, he is getting 50% more salary then me, I was supposed to do more work for my girls, but now it is very difficult for me to do with this much income. Although almost every year I get reward of best performer in my company, but still my salary is not as per my designation, May be it is so, because I am a woman. So I have decided to do something new, I am teaching girls in my school, I have a beauty salon training center and a stitching center. So from Now I have decided to teach English to the girls, For which I will take some fee, from those who can pay, But if someone will not be able to pay I will ask them to teach my girls in the school for one hour a day, and the fee, that I will collect from other students, I will use that to fulfill the expenses at Zephaniah free education. Rest of the education and skills trainings will remain free, and I will try to save some money for the computer center too, which I am planing to make in next month. I have made this banner for this purpose, and before I could place it, one girl has already taken admission for English language course. I know my English is not that much perfect, so what I will do is, I will take a lesson of English language on internet every day and the same I will deliver to the girls. And all of this is going to happen because of internet, if I did not have internet , I was not be able to work on this plan, just because of this magic box, I will change more lives, I will learn more and I will teach more. I never went to school after grade 7th, but still I am able to teach my students everything which they need to learn. I can find the solutions of their all problems; I am getting support from around the world, from my friends who met me on social media. I am able to tell the world that what problems women in Pakistan are facing and how they are changing, Internet is essential for women if we want to give them their rights, if we want them to learn everything they need, if we want them to explore their ideas. That’s why I call the internet a magic box.
