Success Story


12 years old Hamza touched by the play and felt the character “Kamal” inside him as we also want to get education but due to his father’s traditional mindset he wasn’t able to pursue his dreams. As he said “I get my father with me to watch this play because I knew this play will change his mind as it touched me also. When my father watched this performance, he did not say any single word and went home. I was scared that he will surely be angry on me but eventually this play touched him too and he said you will also get education like Kamal (character) did”
This is not one success story but there are many people especially parents who prevent their children to get education was so much sensitized by witnessing this play and changed their minds on this fact that education will make complete their children and provide a sophisticated way of life.
