Pakistan flood aftermath raises education fears
2 days ago
When flooding devastated northwest Pakistan in late August, 8-year-old Sinain Bibi lost out on about two months of education after half of her school building was swept away, along with the wooden bridge that connected her village with the school.
Bibi must embark on a treacherous trek each day to attend a makeshift school, held in a tent on a riverbank in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. She is worried about the class and said it would take her a while to catch up.
"The calamity has seriously disturbed my studies as I couldn't learn a single lesson since my school was closed," Bibi said outside the temporary school in the village of Lagan Khar village, in Swat district.
