Challenge

Covid-19 pandemic has left more than 11 million Afghan children out-of-school. Since the country's majority of people do not have access to internet or Television, therefore, the online or teaching through TV by the government does not reach the majority of the students. With the continuous lockdown, the children in Afghanistan have no other option other than receiving education through innovative approaches without smart phones or TVs.

Solution

Teach for Afghanistan Organization's trained fellows prepare and provide easy to understand curriculums . They go door to door, share the curriculums and follow up regularly by phone to answer questions and check the students' homework. TAO's fellows also provide CDs of all online classes and deliver to the most needy schools in 10 districts of the two provinces (Nangarhar and Parwan). The daily teaching through mobile phone covers about 10,000 students among whom 85% are girls.

Long-Term Impact

Since Ministry of education did not cancel the annual or mid-term examinations, therefore our approach will help the students learn and get good marks to pass the examinations. The school closure during this lockdown may push the poor families to take their children for labor work, however, TAO's approach will keep the children busy with studies. Its fellowship program is for two years, after which the fellows become Alumni; they will serve the schools, no matter what positions they occupy.
