A teacher from Pakistan received the Global Teacher Award


A Pakistani teacher, Sister Zeph, recently won the prestigious Global Teacher Award, and she plans to use the $1 million prize to expand her school for underprivileged children. Born in Gujranwala, she established the school at 13, working tirelessly to fund it through eight-hour days, teaching for four hours, and self-learning at night. Now, after 26 years, the school provides free education to over 200 children in a new building.
Sister Zeph views teaching as a vocation to inspire and empower the next generation. She emphasizes the collective effort needed to overcome challenges in education and calls for global unity to ensure every child, regardless of background, has access to quality education. Her advocacy extends to quality education, gender equality, and empowering marginalized communities.
With the Global Teacher Prize fund, Sister Zeph aims to build a school and shelter for orphans, incorporating sustainable practices. She envisions inviting teachers worldwide to instruct children in various subjects.
