Artist's Description

As i lay recovering from an avalanche
on Nooradin Peak
young Taira kept me company
watching me draw and writing in my journals

i showed her how to draw and write her name
i realised she had never written before
i wanted to make sure she would get an education
so i spoke to her father and gave him money to send her to school
and travelled to buy her school clothes

in a dream before i came to Pakistan
i dreamt about building a school
for little girls
because i believe girls especially in Central Asia
deserve the right to an education
instead of fathers denying them because they will be married off

this place is Manoor Valley and I promise to return here
