It will go towards innovative community-wide schemes to encourage parents to send their daughters to school. And the results can have far-reaching effects even outside the classroom, as Rehana's and Uzma's families discovered.
Five-year-olds, Rehana Barohi and Uzma Kharani, are students of Sohbo Kariro GGNG primary school, Shahdadkot district, Sindh. They are members of rival ethnic groups, but are best friends at school. However, after attending community meetings about improving the school and discovering their daughters were school-friends, their fathers also became friends and decided to ignore the local disputes.
