The draconian suppression of women's rights and freedoms since the Taliban seized power in August 2021, has led to a dramatic decline in the wellbeing and life chances of Afghanistan's women and girls. The government is systematically erasing women and girls from public life. Because of that, 80% of school-aged Afghan girls and young women are out of school (UNESCO 2023) and restricting women from working can result in an economic loss of up to five percent of the country GDP. (UNDP2022)

Afghanistan is a country struggling to achieve peace and stability. With the Taliban takeover in August 2021, the country descended in one of the worst multidimensional humanitarian crises in the world in which women and girls are the most affected. It is the only state where women are banned from secondary education (grade 7th and above), from university education, and from working in most governmental agencies as well as in national and international NGOs.


Advancing Girls Education in Afghanistan (AGEA 2.0) has the goal of providing girls and young women with viable education opportunities in the current context in Afghanistan. Over the next three years, it will offer young women vocational training in computer literacy, coding, and web development (GCC program) and it will provide marginalised children in target communities with access to primary education based on the country's accepted Community Based Education model (CBE program).

Long-Term Impact

Our program will provide valuable skills and restore the sense of value and purpose for Kabul-based female students in secondary or university age, ideally contributing at their academic and career paths. We will also provide access to primary education to children (at least 60% to 80% girls) in marginalised communities to continue fostering an education based on the values of dignity, peace and gender equality.
