Life Lessons


Shahnzah works to instill reading skills and a love of learning in young school children.

Forty students are the max allowed for each primary school teacher by education policy in the Muzaffargarh district of Pakistan. But most teachers have more – sometimes many more. In fact, one teacher even had more than 180 students. 

To help create abetter learning environment, World Vision trained 41 assistant teachers, 12 of whom are women, to work alongside teachers. Shahnzah is one of them.

She became the first girl in her village to graduate from college when she earned her education degree, and she wants to see more change. “I always prayed to God to give me the chance to serve the children,” she says. “Now, I am teaching children in school.” 

Shahnzah’s success shows how educating girls creates change in a community. She has set an ambitious goal of achieving a 100 percent literacy rate in her area. She started by finding out how many children are out of school and has already persuaded many parents to send their children to school.
