Belonging to a conservative Muslim community where girls’ education is not a priority, Bilkish had more obstacles to cross to move forward to college education. As a 4 year old little girl she had lost her place as a cherished child of her parents when her father died and the mother remarried. She was packed off to an institution. Coming out of the institution, after finishing school, she faced her step father’s reluctance to support her in any way, leave alone her education. This is when her frail, ailing mother approach Child Welfare Committee (CWC) for support for her, and was referred to IAPA. This was in 2007.

Today, in 2013 having a commerce degree in hand and qualification in computers Bilkish is earning a decent income. She was working even earlier, to supplement her education cost by teaching English to children in IAPA’s Asmita classes. She is today the bread winner and a big support to her family. She has come this far, despite heavy household burden, due to her own strong will that received support for coaching classes, necessities and continued guidance from the agency.
