Razia Jan receives inaugural award for her efforts through Razia's Ray of Hope Foundation

Wicked Local Duxbury: When Razia Jan returns to town, she returns to a community she describes as the backbone of her efforts to build the Zabuli Education Center for Women and Girls, the mission of which is to educate young women in her home country of Afghanistan. It’s a return that becomes very emotional and brings tears of joy to her eyes. At the Duxbury Senior Center Sunday, during a reception sponsored by the Duxbury Rotary Club, she looks back on the evolution of her efforts to help the people of Afghanistan. “It’s a journey, and we are in the middle,” she said. “I am so proud the last three years to have the school going.”
