The Chance to Go to School Quigley and Jan are working hard to make the school sustainable so that one day it will continue independent of their help. "Razia's name will be here for thousands of years," one Deh'Subz community member respectfully remarks. "Even when Razia is gone her name will always be a part of this school and she will be known as the Mother of Deh'Subz." Jan and Quigley know that while hope is essential, more time is needed to ensure that the school remains viable. "I hope and pray for support," Jan says. "Women's lives are still not valued here. I fear for these brave girls." After hearing Jan describe the challenges that girls who want education in Afghanistan face, Suneby was both inspired and determined. "I knew right then that I needed to share these stories with grown-ups and kids living in developed countries who, understandably, take education for granted." Razia's Ray of Hope, a great end-of-the summer read, will get anyone fired-up about going back to school.
