Summary

The Taliban's oppressive rule has severely diminished Afghan women and girls' rights and freedoms. The government is systematically erasing them from public life. Approximately, 80% of school-aged Afghan girls and young women are out of school. Restrictions on girls and women have severe implications for their education as well as the country. And that's why Womanity continues to provide girls with access to education and vocational training, offering them a pathway to a better future.

Challenge

Following the Taliban's resurgence, women and girls are grappling with formidable obstacles in accessing education and employment. Afghanistan is in the middle of a dire humanitarian crisis and the female population is disproportionately affected. They have to contend with a systematic dismantling of their basic human rights, including being banned from secondary education beyond the 6th grade, attending university, and occupying most public spaces including for work.

Solution

By facilitating accessible educational opportunities for girls and young women in present-day Afghanistan, we aim to safeguard women's rights and promote gender equality in the country. The initiative will deliver vocational training in computer literacy, coding, and web development, Additionally, it will ensure that marginalised children - 60% - 80% of whom are girls - have access to primary education as per the government-approved community-based education model.

Long-Term Impact

Access to education means girls are healthier, live longer, are less likely to be forced into early marriage, earn more money, and have more agency in their households. Our initiative will equip girls with valuable skills, affording them opportunities in both their education and future careers, enabling them to access a better, more dignified life for themselves and their families. In turn, this will result in a slow but sure transformation of communities, and eventually, the country at large.
