A humanitarian crisis is taking place in Afghanistan with children especially at risk. Access to basic amenities and education is a huge concern, notably for girls. Just 2% of girls attend school in some areas. With the withdrawal of the government and foreign troops, and the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (Taliban) taking power, widespread fear and uncertainty has led to thousands displaced and in need of help. We are committed to Afghan children's safety and education through this uncertainty.


Street Child aim to bring life-sustaining education to 40,000 Afghan children this year, many for the very first time, in Baghlan, Uruzgan and Zabul. We stay committed to supporting children's education and will engage with the necessary authorities to do so, using our extensive local presence. Our community-centred approach encourages local engagement, investment and ownership, providing safe community-based classes, teacher training, accelerated learning programmes and life skills education.

Long-Term Impact

Street Child provide education in areas of Afghanistan where it wouldn't happen otherwise. Access to education is critical when marginalised Afghan children are at risk of child labour, child marriage, recruitment into armed groups, and sexual abuse, if they are not in school. Evaluations of our education programmes have shown great results with 95% of students completing education/exams and 90% transferring into secondary school, reaching 113,325 children (75% girls) in Afghanistan so far.
