Rashid Razzaq never let himself being held back by his disability. He
initiated a mobile library in Toba Tek Singh and SATH supported his vision by providing him with a bicycle, books on various
issues and training. Rashid was hugely active and a regular visitor in the city and its nearby villages. As people borrowed
books from him he inspired them by demonstrating how his disability was not preventing him from serving the community.
Rashid was also a gifted member of our interactive
theatre team, which uses drama to provide community education on important social issues. He gave some excellent performances
highlighting issues of disability, peace, women’s rights and the challenges facing the 2005 earthquake victims in northern
areas of Pakistan.
