There are approximately 3.7 million out-of-school children (OOSC) in Afghanistan. Significantly, 60.0% of OOSC are girls, and in some provinces as many as 85% of girls are out-of-school. Additionally, it is estimated that 95% of children with disabilities do not attend school. There are multiple reasons for this situation, including poverty, damaged and inadequate numbers of classrooms, shortage of teachers (especially female teachers) and relevant learning and teaching resources, lack of inclusive facilities at schools, cultural norms which deprioritize education for girls, and long distances to schools for many children. Continuity of education is another significant problem, with many girls and boys unable to progress from one stage of study to the next largely due to capacity limitations in the formal hub schools. All of these challenges have been exacerbated by the protracted emergency situation, combined with the prevalence of natural disasters and climate change impacts, and resulting dislocation of populations.
The Education Cannot Wait (ECW) Facilitated Multi-Year Program (MYP) will target the most vulnerable displaced populations in Afghanistan, with a particular focus on girls and IDP and returnee refugee communities. Interventions will improve access to education through community-based and innovative approaches; create an inclusive teaching and learning environment for emergency affected girls and boys; improve continuity of education by facilitating opportunities for students to transition from lower to higher grades; improve the quality of learning, and create safer and more protective learning environments. The MYP links humanitarian Education in Emergencies (EiE) programming with the mid and longer-term development objectives for the sector. By effectively bridging the humanitarian-development divide the strategic intention is to: a) catalyze recovery, b) help implement Afghanistan’s new Community-Based Education Policy, and c) promote continuity of education. The program will target 500,000 children annually.
Global Partnership for Education (GPE): Considering the nature of the problem, GPE programs “Provide access to education for emergency-affected children in Afghanistan” and “Continuity of Education for COVID-19 Emergency-affected Children in Afghanistan” aim is to ensure Emergency-affected Out of School Children (OOSC) in Hard to Reach (HTR) areas have access to quality learning provided in community-based centers (CBCs) as well as Established Community Based Education (CBEs) are ready with the resources, information, and materials they need to mitigate and respond to COVID-19.
