Naeeda Aurangzeb talks with activist Razia Jan, director Beth Murphy and UN child protection expert Dee Brillenburg Wurth about education for girls in conflict areas.
Journalist Naeeda Aurangzeb is born in Pakistan. She is an expert in putting things in the right perspective. Especially when it comes to religion that means expanding, against the tendency of narrowness. After the film, Naeeda will interview Razia Jan and director Beth Murphy about the position of girls and the importance of education in war-torn and very religious Afghanistan. Child Protection expert Dee Brillenburg Wurth joins the conversation. She has been working on child protection in armed conflict since 1996. Dee worked as Senior Child Protection Advisor for the UN missions in Afghanistan.
Razia Jan has a dream: that all girls in Afghanistan will go to school. And she has already realised the beginning of that dream. In a rural village in Afghanistan, at least 500 girls have been going to her school. And that number is growing fast.Razia Jan was born in Afghanistan and moved to the United States in 1970. Years later she returned. Razia Jan has been praised for her humanitarian work, and she has received many awards. In 2012, she was one of the ten CNN Top 10 Heroes.
