By the time she graduated, five months later, she had won over her in-laws and husband as well.
Today, Rayasat can read and write her name, can dial and read her husband’s mobile number and SMS.
She can also read and understand her electricity bill. It has been a huge liberation.
Earlier she was even afraid to visit the hospital but today she has no fear. She leads other women around, confidently reading the names of wards and of doctors.
Above all, she feels great happiness when she helps her children with their homework.
She says that now when she helps her kids with their school work, her husband and in-laws say “well done”.
This gives her the greatest happiness because she gets more appreciation in her own home.
