In Afghanistan, Keeping the Pace of Progress in Girls’ EducationThe Literacy Site
For years, the Taliban banned women and girls from getting an education. When they were removed from power in Afghanistan, women and girls were able to reclaim many of their human rights, including the right to an education.
Today, nearly 40% of the students in schools in Afghanistan are girls.
Watch this video by UNICEF to see the incredible strides that are being made by the girls of Afghanistan.
Right now, GreaterGood and the Hunger Site are partnering together to make a big difference in the lives of Afghan girls at the Mirwais Mena School. We are committed to ensuring these girls stay in school and remain safe from extremist attacks. There are two buses available for purchase, and with your help, we can buy them for Mirwais Mena School.
