Access to Education
Due to years of war and instability, the Afghan government is unable to provide quality education and safe shelter for children. More than 10% of schools have closed due to insecurity, warfare and targeted destruction, while most schools are housed in tents, mosques and private homes. 3.3 million children (or 32% of the school-age population), the majority of whom are girls, remain out of school.
Furthermore, Afghanistan has the highest level of gender disparity in education in the world, with only 21% of girls able to complete primary education.
