We are the youth of Pushtu family, Khan family, and we want change.

We are the youth of the Khan or Pushtu tribe of Pakistan, and we have been effected by the flood and swat war and bomb blasts. Now we want peace, education, health facilities and most important, we want to promote girls education and human equal rights in Pakistan.

For this purpose I am starting an idea that combines youth from villages, boys and girls, to help them find education.

  • Apr 6 2013: brilliant! as a teacher myself i can tell you that education will naturally rise wherever it is able, so you need not promote education but merely ensure that nothing is stopping it from happening. basically all you need is for children to be able to gather in a single place, so you need peace, healthcare, and viable transport. if kids are able to come and learn, come they will!
