A 29-year-old rickshaw driver from Peshawar is giving free rides to school girls to promote girl’s education in his area. A rickshaw driver named Arab Shah gives free pick and drop services to girls in his hometown.
He has been providing free service for the past six years. In a conversation with a local news channel, he added that he provides free service to nearly 100 girls which costs him Rs.500 every day.
When asked about what inspired him to start the service, he said, “My sisters did not have a facility for transport, due to which they were unable to complete their education. I started this service so that these girls do not miss out on education as my sisters have suffered,” said Shah.
He encouraged affluent people to come forward and provide similar services to promote girls’ education in underprivileged areas.
“All this gives me a spiritual satisfaction,” he stated. He added that he wishes to buy more rickshaws so that he can provide free service to as many girls as he can so that no girl has to skip school and her education due to lack of money.
