Bacha posh

By Casper Hedberg – Tamana Airways, 11 years, is a Bacha Posh. Every day after school she trades the black school uniform with long trousers, jacket and a thick knitted woolen cap. Then she goes out on Kabul’s streets, dressed as a boy and with the traditional Afghan boy named Tamin, and sells from a street kiosk consisting of a box of biscuits, candies, small items and drinks. She is the oldest sibling in the family and therefore naturally the one to help her parents with making money and other everyday tasks.
