Ayesha-2

Those who have watched our documentary ’’Flight of the Falcons’’ know Miss Ayesha very well; she is from a family of seven sisters and one brother. During the last year, we had been struggling a lot to convince her father to allow her to get more education...

Every religion of this world teaches us to respect and love each other; this is what is common in all religions of our world and I think this is what religions are all about...

What if women started realizing that they are equal to men... that they have a brain to make a decision like them, a pen to let the world know that they can take a stand for their rights like them? We can make it possible and this is what we have decided to do at Zephaniah Free Education.

Sunset-over-Pakistan

I was 18 at that time and she was 13....  that was first time in my life that I was so shocked that I could not speak for a while; I felt my mind was blocked and I did not find any words to speak. I was a teenage girl so did not know what to do about this, so I told this to my mother...

Zeph-Free-Academy 

I saw a light in her eyes, she was happy because I gave her a way to keep going: “I am educated... I am going to do a job for my family and I will do it..." And I thought I did something good; because of my centre, four lives are going to be safe...

 Ayesh-Arif

During the last 16 years, I have never seen her taking a day off from work....  It is not easy to work on girls' education and empowerment in Pakistan.... The world must know what great people we have in our communities.

Zeph-Sewing-Skills

Before she joined our centre, she was not confident... Now she is a qualified beautician and soon she will complete her English language course, and stitching course, too; she is studying also...

Nawab-Bibi

At the age of 65, Razia Bibi decided to get education, and now a 10 year old girl is her teacher, who teaches her counting and alphabets of Urdu and English....

Sometimes I feel we all are responsible for wars, and hate for each other.... Change is possible, peace is possible, but it has a fee and the name of the fee is to spread love, care, and appreciation as much as you can.

I can say that slavery has not finished yet... many women are still slaves, as a wife, daughter, sister, mother, or a maid...  Yes, there are laws, but if people have no awareness of their rights, then laws are useless.

Inspiring-education

One day a woman reported into work; she was about 47 years old – a widow... I started encouraging her to get more education. She is 52 now, and so ambitious, too.... I feel like she is like a very young girl who has dreams, who has plans for her life... And this happened only because of her education.

“Sister Zeph, I have learnt it from you that if we will not help each other. we cannot have peace and progress in our world. So I am doing nothing but trying to play my role to bring peace and love.”
