In 2005, she started an initiative in the slums of Bangladesh where she has helped 101 families and more than 600 children get an education. Among other things, he built one of the most advanced schools in Bangladesh, despite not even having completed grade 6 herself. But after a 8 years it all came tumbling down due to matters beyond her control.
She showed great resilience and determination, in finding new ways to get the slum children back to school.
