600,000 Children Educated in 20,000 Community-based Classes in Afghanistan

Friday, 12/09/2022

The United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) announced that there are about 20,000 community-based classes in Afghanistan that educate more than 600,000 children.

UNICEF added that it will expand educational opportunities across Afghanistan in 2023.

The organisation has not spoken about the age of the group of the enrolled children at the community-based classes.

Currently, female students in secondary and high schools have been deprived of the right to formal education in Afghanistan.

For more than 445 days, the Taliban has prevented the reopening of girls' secondary schools in Afghanistan.

UNICEF announced on the organisation’s Twitter account on Friday that it will never stop advocating for every child's right to an education.
