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.

    I'd contact the Bill Gates foundation and the Bill & Hillary Clinton foundation.
