Girls’ School

  • Flt. Lt. Gareth Davies
  • Interview by: Jess Boydon


So the girls' school was controversial

because the education of females was definitely

frowned upon by the Taliban.

But for us it was a sign of progress.

It was a sign of something to honor what their desires were.

We did all that we can in supplying books, pencils,

even so much as we went down to finding a carpet

for them so they could have somewhere to sit on.

In the end it was successful.

There were death threats labored

at the teacher concerned which never came to fruition,

fortunately, as the local population once again

guarded the integrity of that particular building.

Indeed there were threats directed at me personally, too,

for supporting such a project.

But clearly I'm safe and well in front of you.
