Overcoming challenges for education in Afghanistan

Thank you very much for your support of Aid Afghanistan for Education during this exceptionally difficult period for women and girls. It truly means so much to us.

After the collapse of the government, AAE has been faced with serious challenges. Girls’ secondary schools are no longer in operation. The de facto government has not delivered a clear perspective on coordination with the NGOs. The newly appointed officials in the education departments are not familiar with the system and processes and therefore, resulting in delays of distribution of the stationary and learning packages. In Afghanistan, schools are closed for three months in the winter, from the middle of December onward.

The financial restrictions added to the challenges. Banks have restricted access to funds. Like other NGOs, AAE could withdraw a small portion of funds, hardly covering the administrative costs. GlobalGiving is currently holding our donations until we can determine a safe route to transfer them, so your generous donations are safe.

AAE upgraded its organizational capacity to address the challenges and appropriately respond to the new context by hiring additional administrative staff, who have the ability and skills to communicate with the newly appointed individuals at the education departments. Along with the other NGOs, and local communities, AAE generated a substantial outreach capacity, which will serve its cause of broader outreach in upcoming months. We are tirelessly working with national and international NGOs to solve the banking problem.

AAE is working with a Qatar-based organization, Education for All, on producing and translating learning material in Farsi and Pashto. Based on arrangements with the communities, schools, and education departments, AAE trained and guided the staff to work with all primary schools to effectively implement the program by the start of the school year on March 21, 2022. Setting up Community Based Education classes and teacher training is the next step in order to reach out to the most marginalized Afghan children.
