Basti Chandia, Tehsil Muzzafargarh. Eleven years old Bilqis of Basti Chandia Tehsil Muzzafargarh whose father died when she was three years old while her mother got remarried and left the children inattentive because her stepfather could not take the responsibility of looking after a crowded family. Now Bilqis lives with her married stepsister, Haliah. Bilqis is a student of Nursery in Ghazali Education Trust School Basti Chandia. Eleven years old Bilqis does not feel embarrassed studying in Nursery because 17 more children of the same age group are her class fellows.
Had her sisters been literate, she would have taken admission at an early age. Six months back when Ghazali Education Trust established school over there, many of the parents showed a willingness to send their daughters to the school. During these three months, Bilqis has learned numbers, alphabets, how to make sentences and has also recited 18 Paras of the Holy Quran. Bilqis believes that whatever she has learned can now transfer to newcomers effectively. She idealizes her teachers. Her innocent gestures are when asked, “I shall become a teacher after completing my studies“.
