GENEVA, Sept 15 : Aqeela Asifi, who has dedicated her life to bringing education to Afghan refugee girls in Pakistan, was on Tuesday awarded the UN refugee agency's annual Nansen prize.
Asifi, a 49-year-old teacher who fled from Afghanistan with her family in 1992, was given the prestigious award for "her brave and tireless dedication to education for Afghan refugee girls," UNHCR said in a statement.     
She initially began teaching a handful of girls in a tent, copying out worksheets by hand.     ?AFP
