Bequim’s mother was one of the three thousand remaining indigenous people in Pakistan known as the Kalash. The Kalash belong to one of the only remaining non-Islamic cultures in Pakistan. Nine years ago she converted to Islam after marrying a Muslim man and moved away from her home in the remote Kalash Valleys. In their new village it is not allowed for boys and girls to attend school together. Since there is only one school in the village, and since boys are given preference when it comes to education, Bequim will not be allowed to attend school.
