Mesbah started attending the Zabuli Education Center in 2016 as a kindergartener. She is now eight years old and in the 2nd grade.
Mesbah is an intelligent, kind, and punctual girl. She has a clear love for her teacher and classmates, especially Eman, her best friend in class. Mesbah shares her lunch with Eman everyday; they have a deep friendship. Mesbah’s favorite subject is English and her favorite part of the school day is playing on the playground. She loves to run with her classmates during their breaks.
Mesbah has four siblings, two of whom are at a public school in Deh’Subz. Her mother is a homemaker and her father is a police officer. In her spare time, she enjoys playing with her dolls and playing peek-a-boo. Mesbah hopes to become an English teacher when she grows up.
Eman is 7 years old and is in the 2nd grade at the Zabuli Education Center.
I was very impressed and proud of our Razia Jan Institute students! The second they arrive at the hospital, they hurriedly change into hospital gear and get to work. On a typical hospital day, they spend the whole day on their feet from 8am to 6pm caring for mothers and infants in a very densely populated and fast-paced hospital. They are so dedicated to the severity of their work, are extremely helpful and professional towards hospital staff, nurses, and doctors, and really seem to love what they are doing. Many RJI students admittedly enjoy giving immunization shots, and assessment in deliveries.
