Having completed her education at a DIL school, Sahib (center) received a scholarship to complete her Nurses training.

Sahib, a young DIL graduate from Khairpur, Sindh, is the first girl to venture out of her village and complete a nurse's training program.

Having completed her education at a DIL school, Sahib received a scholarship to complete her Nurses training.

“I am the only girl to come forward and pursue this path from my family and my town,” Sahib says.

“Nursing is a well-respected profession in society. They are able to benefit and improve the loves around them,” she said.

Good to see a UK charity is helping poor Muslim students to move forward in life. I wish rich Arab countries will also give some Zakat money to poor countries like Pakistan.

“Nursing is a well-respected profession in society. They are able to benefit and improve the loves around them,” she said. Kudos to her and her classmates. Keep up the good work, Pakistan needs good nurses, there is shortage of nurses all over the world. My grand daughter Kortney just graduated from nursing college in May and now she is a registered nurse after passing the State of Kansas medical board exam. I am proud of her and proud of you for furthering your education.
