The first female district governor in Afghanistan is about to finish her first month in office.

Saira Shakeeb Sadat says she's trying to bring more prosperity to an isolated area in northern Jowzjan province, home to five thousand families.

Sadat says Khwaja Dukoh, a relatively peaceful area, receives little international aid and continues to suffer basic shortages.
