Written by: Wajiha Sayar

Kawsar and Nooria go to the castle and they are waiting for Lalo Mama. Kawsar seems sad she says to Nooria that she is discouraged about going to school and she doesn’t know how to solve her problem. Nooria says that every problem has a solution. Meanwhile, Lalo Mama comes and they greet him. Lalo Mama takes them inside the castle.

Lalo Mama asks about Nooria’s sadness. Nooria says that her teacher always beats her and she doesn’t know the reason of her beating. Nooria says that if she shares the issue with her family, they might prevent her from going school and if she shares it with the school administration, the teacher might get information and she would beat her more.

Lalo Mama says that this problem is common in some schools and he opens a window for their information.


In the window, the reporter of the castle is talking with some school girls about their problems in school.

Noorzia, a 12th-grade student of Wazir Muhammad Akbar Khan high school, Ahmad Shah Baba Mena, district 16, Kabul city says: “About three months ago, some bike riders were harassing girls on the way to school. One day when I was going to school with my friend, a bike rider came and pushed our hands. We were very afraid of them and we did not know how we went to school on that day.”

Lema, a resident of Kama district, Nangarhar province says: “We had many problems at school. We did not have books, chairs, tables and we were facing the teachers' shortage and there was no teacher to teach us.”

Lalo Mama closes the window. Nooria and Kawsar say that they have the same problems at school and due to these problems, most students could not study their lessons well.

Lalo Mama says that every problem has a solution and then he opens another window for their more information.


The reporter of the castle says that some girls who are facing harassment on the way to school, they have accepted their defeat but some others have found a solution to this issue.

Salma, a student of Deh Araban, Qargha area, Paghman district says: “our school did not have a building and we were studying in tents and we did not have tables and chairs and we were sitting on the ground under the sun. Our classes were near to bathroom and the bad smell of the bathroom was annoying us and we were always getting sick.

We shared the issue with our families and they shared it with school administration. Then the education council of the school had a gathering and they solved our problems and they built a two stories building for us. Our villagers planted trees in our school and now we do not have any problem and we could learn our lessons well.”

Lalo Mama closes this window too. Kawsar says that she would also share the issue with her parents and they would share with the education council to find a solution to this problem.
