For 20 years, AAE used an accelerated education approach to assist, over 2500 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. Now, under the Taliban rule, we're adapting to educate students safely by providing educational materials and supporting community-based classrooms.
Due to the current criss and return of the Taliban, AAE's successful educational program ceased to operate. AAE will do anything possible to support our students to have access to education and educational materials. We are prepared to distribute educational materials and will set up community-based classrooms to ensure that women and girls receive education.
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.
