Back to school and lockdown again

With the new of the Academic year in Afghanistan (end of March 2021), we also started our new cycle of classes. We emnrolled more than 600 students.
In Grade 10th  girls learn English and we have currently 210  students enrolled in our classes. In grade 11th for our ICT (computer literacy) classes, we have 203 students and finally, in grade 12th for our coding and web development classes, we have 195 students.

At the beginning of June, following a sharp increase of Covid -19 cases in Afghanistan, the government announced a lockdown for all schools (currently expected to end on July 10th ).

In order to maintain a high level of interest in our classes and to preserve girls´ skills and continued education, we are currently running a few workshops online waiting to hopefully resume our regular curriculum and in person classes in mid-July.

In 2021, we also kicked off a partnership with The Rumie Initiative to adapt their educational content to the Afghan context.

In parallel, we are monitoring very closely the situation in Kabul to be able to act in the most appropriate manner on the basis of the reality on the ground as international troops continue to withdraw.
