Teacher helps students in tribal areas despite losing both legs in blast in 1999

Lost both his legs and an arm in a bomb blast in 1999 but not his hopes. Gulzar Hussain, a 28-year-old, differently-abled trained educationist teaches at school in Parachinar, helps children in tribal areas. Hussain received his early education by going to his school on a donkey’s back, and eventually got a master’s degree in Islamic Studies, and a Primary Teachers Certificate (PTC).

He now teaches underprivileged children of his native village in a local government primary school, on a minimum salary.

Reportedly, Hussain, a resident of Luqmankhel in the Upper Kurram tribal district of Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), lost one of his arms and both legs in an improvised explosive device (IED) blast when he was a child.
