We have programmes in several countries affected by conflict, in Africa and Asia. We’ve worked in Afghanistan since 1997, remaining throughout the Taliban regime, educating children who would otherwise be robbed of their chance to learn. For more on out work in Afghanistan please scroll down.
Our work in Afghanistan
More than a third of our students are children who have fled to Kabul to escape violence in their home provinces. And there are the street-working children, whose struggling families need them to earn money and help buy food, fuel or lodgings.
Children learn at our centres through accelerated learning so that they can catch up, as quickly as possible, on the education they have missed. They learn the full six years of a primary school education in three.
