Wow, thanks Jez! I taught at one of these schools just north of Peshawar— it wasn't funded by UNICEF, but was a similar sort of program for girls that were very interested and serious about learning English so they could go on to colleges. It's such the beginning of educational opportunities for the female masses there. Most of their mothers and even older sisters didn't have the chance to attend college...it's really exciting to watch young women realize they have opportunities they never, ever thought they could have. Anyways, end of gush.
