When the school for the Karayu was built, only boys were expected to attend, not because girls weren’t allowed but because of traditional thinking. However, Alia’s father didn’t care if it was culturally unacceptable for his daughter to be educated.

He was confident and truly believed in her abilities. So he enrolled her, and Alia became the first Karayu girl ever to go to school!

Many people were confident that Alia would fail miserably. They were wrong. Alia scored some of the highest marks in the area and has now graduated with a diploma in law.

This young girl was truly a pioneer; her feat was in a way no less great than being the first person to walk on the moon. The ratio of boys to girls in the Karayu school is now even, a remarkable advancement.
