Afghan Father Who Drives Daughter 12 KM on Bike To School Gets School For His Village
Mia Khan drives his daughter to school every day on his motorbike, covering a distance of 12 KM.
A few weeks ago, an Afghan father made headlines for his commitment to educating his daughter in war-torn Afghanistan.
Mia Khan drives his daughter to school every day on his motorbike, covering a distance of 12 KM. Once she arrives there, he waits until the end of her classes.
Now, the Afghan education ministry has decided to build a school in Mia Khan’s village keeping in mind the difficulties people face there to get an education. He was also invited by the government to Kabul where he was presented a medal for his efforts.
“Providing education to children is a responsibility of the households, but Mia Khan’s case was exceptional because for years he had to ride or walk his two daughters for miles,” the ministry’s public affairs chief, Noorya Nazhat, told Arab News.
Noorya Nazhat announced the news about building a school in Mia Khan’s village but didn’t share any further details regarding the project.
“We come from too long a distance. And I demand a school be established close to our home. Yes, my father is a daily wage laborer. We become too tired after reaching our school and sometimes we get late,” Mia Khan’s daughter had said during a telephonic conversation with Arab News.
Afghanistan has badly suffered due to the decades-long war. According to Mia Khan, he wants his daughter to become a doctor and serve humanity.
