Daughters of Pakistan
Under Pakistan’s strict Islamist rule, an education is off-limits to most young Christian girls. Yet one group of courageous mothers has found a way to bravely educate their daughters. Gathering together under the guise of “making scarves,” they stitch and dye colorful fabrics while their daughters secretly learn to read and write. As these mothers provide for their families and pay for tutors, they quietly and deliberately educate their daughters with dignity. Though this program is small, it is profoundly important. If even one of these girls learns to read, think, dream, pray, and love others, she might well be the next Helen Keller, Florence Nightingale, or Indira Ghandi! When you wear this scarf, remember the girls in Pakistan who are blossoming into bright, educated women ready to make a difference in their society.
