For 20 years, AAE used an accelerated education approach to assist, over 7000 women and girls, who didn't have access to formal education system due to age or marital status, to earn their high school diploma and to participate as an active member of the society. Over 2700 graduated. Now, under the Taliban rule, we're reaching out to the most unprivileged children who are working on the streets to feed the families. We are also setting up homeschooling for those who are not allowed an edu.
Due to the current situation and return of the Taliban, AAE's successful educational program ceased to operate and our office in Kabul has closed. We will do anything possible to provide education for the most disadvantaged.
AAE educates marginalized women and girls to give them the tools they need to improve the livelihoods of their families and communities. Over the next two years, we plan to distribute learning materials to at least 200,000 students and support in the development of as many community-based classrooms as needed.
Literacy in Afghanistan will increase more rapidly due to our accelerated curriculum and our focus on women and girls who don't have access to the public school system. Educating mothers help educate future generations, reduces domestic violence, and improves the community.
