The overall goal of the project is to enhance quality of girl’s education by providing them civic education and conducting teachers trainings. The Project aims to provide complimentary learning opportunities for the girls as a way of extending the state curriculum where such opportunities are not given. Summer programs run for girls to participate in political and civic education, teachers are trained in student-centred teaching techniques, awareness raising sessions take place for community elders, parents and religious leaders on the importance of girl’s education, five teacher’s resource centres will be established along with the five play areas for selected schools and 14 schools will receive sports equipment. In order to further encourage interactive learning and the importance of creativity within the education system, teachers and students will be identified to take part in five arts classes per year. Girl’s education has not been taken as a priority in recent history within Afghanistan. The reasons for this are multifaceted and complex. This multidimensional project aims to target the root causes of discrimination against girl’s education while improving the system to further encourage the enrollment of girls in a sustainable way.
