Shagufta Wani

‘When I first wrote the article, I was sure it was worthy of being discarded in the waste bin. Now everyone in my school remembers me. My father and brothers are very proud of me,’ says an excited Shagufta Wani, a school teacher from Khumriyal Village, close to the LoC in the Kashmir Valley, had written an article during the Charkha Writing Workshop on the poor state of windows in the area. The article won the UNFPA-Laadli Award for Gender Sensitivity 2010for its sensitive portrayal of the plight of the widows of the region.

This time, we'll dive deeper into the intersection of development and gender through the lens of photography. Plus, we're adding a playful twist with a Play for Peace facilitator to make learning engaging and fun.
