The origins

As a child, Sister Zeph was a bit naughty. You would find her often making jokes at school and pulling her classmates’ legs. She also had a dream: that one day she would become a lawyer. At the age of thirteen, her first article on Women’s rights appeared in Jung, a very famous newspaper in Pakistan. Then in the course of her growing years, one incident changed her life forever.
"I left my school when I was in Grade Seven,” says Sister Zeph. “I decided to never go back to that school. I was so humiliated by what happened. One day while at school, I delivered a speech to my class, acting like a teacher. I was standing on the teacher’s chair. When our teacher came into class, she lost her temper and started beating me for my little tirade, in front of my classmates. I was just crying and crying; I was hurt mentally and psychologically. This was not the right way to teach a child who was just being a child."
So at 13, Sister Zeph told her parents that she would stop going to school and that she had envisioned another plan: she would create her own school where she could be the teacher of her own learnings to other girls in Pakistan.
"It was funny for the people around me—no one trusted me and no-one was ready to join my school because I was just a kid. In the beginning, there was only one student. I started my classes in open air. When I started, there were no pens, no papers, I only had a few books. When it rained, we had to shut shop. Our roof was the sky. Our limit is the sky."
Sister Zeph and her school have now taught more than 500 girls.
