Ruqayya comes from a very humble background and she has been touched by the way of life of the children in her county. She has been visiting slum areas, talking to girls and encouraging them to go to school. She has also initiated projects such as conservation of the environment by planting trees. Moreover, Ruqayya has suggested to visit drop outs from her school. Considering the number of street children, school drop outs have reduced, especially concerning the girl child.
