Afghanistan’s education system has been devastated by more than three decades of sustained conflict. For many of the country’s children, completing primary school remains a distant dream – especially in rural areas and for girls. In the poorest and remote areas of the country, enrolment levels vary extensively and girls still lack equal access to Primary and secondary schooling. According to a report by UNISEF 2022, “An estimated 3.7 million children are out-of-school in Afghanistan – 60% of them are girls”. And as the crisis is unfolding the situation has become even worse. For children and youth’s education in Afghanistan, 2021 has been a difficult year. Prolonged school and university closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, conflict and displacement in the lead-up to the Taliban take-over in August 2021, and the subsequent political instability have all worked to undermine access to quality education in the country. The change in the political and policy landscape precipitated the suspension of most external aid to the sector on which the education system relied, thus interrupting quality education facilities.

TEST believes a strong education system is key to getting more children in school, preventing drop outs, and helping our children to nourish, learn, grow, while polishing their talents and potentials to become productive and responsible citizens. TEST focuses on working at the national, provincial, and community levels in close collaboration with the Ministry of Education (MoE), Education Cluster and other partners. our support focuses on the most vulnerable people in remote, far off disadvantaged areas, particularly girls, fighting illiteracy caused by poverty, discrimination and perpetual conflict. One of the primary focus areas is learning and education, especially for children in emergencies and crises, children in extreme poverty, and children facing discrimination in education.

TEST has programming focus on early childhood development, to ensure that they are adequately prepared for formal schooling by providing preschool environments and easy interactive home schooling materials. For aged but illiterate TEST designs and conduct a Literacy catch up program to help them gain reading and writing skills. TEST believes that along with educational programs, vocational training can be the best intervention in order to enable vulnerable groups, such as widows, orphans, disabled, and IDPs, become financially stable and able to securing their livelihood.
