Community Based Education

For sustainable and long-term development in the war-torn country, the provision of education to the new generation is of key importance to ensure that gradually more Afghans are equipped with the right tools to play an active role in their country’s development. The community-based education activities proposed under this project shall be undertaken in three provinces:  Ghazni and Kapisa in central Afghanistan, and Khost in the southeast.

The overall approach includes providing a strong foundation for building much-needed human resources for Afghanistan by providing primary education, transition to secondary education for girls, capacity building for teachers, advocacy for extending Ministry of Education facilities to remote areas, and mobilizing and building communities’ capacity to take an active part in activities related to the education of their children. The three-pronged approach also includes capacity-building of local civil society organizations to play a more effective role in further strengthening education services:
