    "Not" A School Girl


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter MMusa was struck by this patient young girl walking through fields in Shahdadpur, Sindh province, in Pakistan to bring her father food instead of attending school. He does not blame the father, but lack of understanding and awareness about the importance of education. "A girl's education is important to me as they are going to be the mother of any nation in the world," he said. "Quality education should be available to poor people, [they] should not be left behind just because they cannot afford it."

    A little girl, name not known, because i didn`t ask her. Leaving the name aside, she lives in Sanghar, Sindh, Pakistan. Her father is farmer. Instead of taking books and toys in her hands, she is taking food for her father who is waiting for her in a harsh and hot weather. She might even gets punished if she reaches late. It is not her father`s fault even if he punishes her. He has faced the same situation in his childhood. And same was the case with father of her father as he did not send him to the school. So, how should she go to school? The question arises here, who is responsible for this? Think over that.
