Ho-Yakeen, a six part documentary series by SOC Films is an inspiring example for every Pakistani to make a brighter Pakistan. It follows the stories of ordinary citizens struggling to bring about a positive change in Pakistan. The first episode of Ho-Yaqeen is about a brave woman named Sabina Khatri who focuses on the education of children in Lyari. With crimes such as drug dealing, killing and many other illegal activities taking place in the area, the probability of education having a huge influence on the future of children in the community, is quite high.
It is true that the environment where an individual is nurtured has a huge influence on his or her behavior especially a child’s growth and development during its primary stages where parents become the main point of socialization. However apart from parental interaction which can have both positive and negative affects on a child, the contribution of the environment and other social factors cannot be overlooked. Sabina Khatri understands the situation of Lyari, she chooses this place to prevent the children from this area becoming tangled in nefarious activities within Lyari. Hence, she tries to bring change not only through the education of children but their parents as well. Acknowledging that fathers have more power than mothers in decision-making, she insists on educating both. Overall, this episode shows how she has inspired children as well as the community for a brighter Pakistan, bringing about a positive change in the community.
