On this International Women’s Day week, we acknowledging Alina Rezaee, a woman refugee to celebrate her leadership role and tremendous efforts in changing the community and working hard for a more equal future.

Alina Rezaee, 24, is an Afghanistan refugee who lives in India. Rezaee, a student at Delhi University, gives back to her community through volunteering in language teaching.

“Growing up, I was weak in language. I do not want other Afghan refugee children to go through the same educational hardship. That is why I spend my evenings teaching children in my community”. (Alina Rezaee)

Alina comes from an educated family background that prioritizes studies no matter the gender. As His Highness, the Aga Khan quoted in one of His speeches, “You can have nothing in your pocket, and only the clothes and the shoes you wear, but if you have a well-educated mind, you will be able to seize the opportunities life offers you and start all over again.”
