Sukkur: Arming an independent Pakistan with independent citizens is what students Syeda Soohan Rani, Sandeep Kumar and Atizaz Ahsan do.
Attending IBA Sukkur on scholarship, the trio knows the benefit of having an education; it’s the difference between finding a spring and begging for a cup of water.
So when a community of flood victims settled outside their campus, they understood that a bit of their time could change the destiny of this nation. “Progress will come once society stops being a burden on itself” says Soohan Rani.
The trio independently set up a tent school in the flood victim’s settlement and teaches the children more than the ABC’s and 123’s that were unheard of in their community; it encourages children to rely on themselves and bring the change they want to see in their lives.
In only a month and a half, begging children transformed in to rays of hope. As a 10-year-old student said “I am going to be a judge when I grow up, so I can serve what is just and make sure that homeless people like me all over Pakistan have homes to live in.”
