A Chance to Go Back to School
Saima dropped out of school after her father had an accident and wasn't able to support his family.
When she found out from her friends that they were doing sports and learning about social issues, like early marriage, she wanted to return to school.
Having learnt more about the importance of education through the project, her father decided Saima should go back to school. She dreams of being a teacher.
