Synopsis

Razia's Ray of Hope One Girl's Dream of an Education by Elizabeth Suneby

Razia's Ray of Hope is the story of one girl's dream of getting an education and attending a new school in her village in Afghanistan. But her father and brother are against the idea. Can she persuade them that it is a good idea? Razia falls asleep every night dreaming of going to school like her brothers Jamil and Karim. So when she learns that a girls' school is being built just down the road from her home, she is filled with hope... This is a compelling story of one girl's aspirations to go to school in Afghanistan during the Taliban regime. It is a moving account of how she finally persuades her father and older brother to let her go. Razia Jan, who appears in the story, founded the Kabuli Education Centre in Afghanistan to offer local girls an education in a story reminiscent of Malala Yousafzai's campaign for female education in Pakistan.
