Plan has been working in the mountainous region of Mansehra in Pakistan since 1997. Following the 2005 earthquake, setting up camps to care for orphans and particularly girls was an immediate priority which had an unexpected and positive outcome. Girls in the remote mountainous regions rarely attended school, but once they enjoyed the benefits of an education in the evacuation camps, they did not want to stop.
