Mahrukh has been living in UAE for a year now, but the cruelty against children in her home country Afghanistan, the lack of access to education, health services, shelters, purified water and food motivates her advocacy. Mahrukh teaches children, but mostly girls, about abuse, compulsory child marriages and girls and children’s rights. She has been an active member of the board of UNICEF, and helped them by providing necessary goods to underprivileged children in poverty-stricken areas. The encouragement of Mahrukh has paved the way for all girls to join schools and get a good education.
