Progress on adult education policy in Afghanistan

Thank you so much for your support for the expansion of Aid Afghanistan for Education's accelerated learning program in Afghanistan. It's a long process, but we have faith that the hard work will be well worth it in the end!

Right now, there are policy barriers for the establishment of two new schools in Kabul for married women and overage girls. The Deputy Ministry of Literacy is working to develop the Policy for Adults Education in Afghanistan. The policy will provide support to the expansion of our Accelerated Education Program across the country.  

Besides this, AAE is working with the Ministry of Education to include the Accelerated Education Program into the Girls' Education Strategy. The development of Girls' Education Strategy and Policy for Adults Education was somewhat affected by the general election in Afghanistan, which took place on September 28. As you can imagine, the country-wide election was disruptive to everyday life in Afghanistan. Voter turnout was very low because many people feared threats from extremist groups. Here is an article from BBC where you can read more information about the election.  

AAE will continue its work with Deputy Minister of Literacy to push forward the development of Adult Education Policy and will look to ensure the inclusion of the program in Girls' Education Strategy.  

Once the program included in the Girls' Education Strategy, AAE will be able to start working more concretely toward the establishment of two new schools.
