Rickshaw driver Arab Shah, gives free rides to 100+ girls attending schools to promote girls’ education

Rickshaw driver, Arab Shah, from Warsak Road, Peshawar, has provided more than 100 female students free transportation to school to support the promotion of education amongst female students in his city. He believes that every girl has the right to pursue education, hence he works harder to make it easier‌ ‌for these girls to get to school without worrying about the cost.

He said he has to make various trips to take the girls to school, which consumes considerable time and fuel. As compensation for lost passenger revenue, Shah said he works late into the evening. Usually, he earns about Rs. 30,000 ($200) a month, but he loses half as much money because of the free lifts.
