Girls education is a challenge in Pakistan's Pashtun heartland. The lack of resources, conservative culture and extremism are major obstacles on the long road toward achieving one hundred percent girls enrollment in schools in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and tribal regions. Arshad Momand of VOA Deewa highlights a teacher's efforts to make a difference toward that end.
The Taliban attack on a Peshawar school in December has galvanized teachers across Pakistan. The attack that left 150 people dead, most of them children, has teachers rethinking their approach to security. VOA Deewa reporter Arshad Momand shows us how one group of instructors are fighting back.
