Investing in Basic Education
Afghanistan has come a long way in increasing the numbers of schools operating, teachers hired and children enrolled. However, the quality of the education sector remains poor and much more needs to be done to support children to succeed through school. Our Investing in Basic Education Program is helping to improve the quality of education by training teachers who are working in classrooms, and expanding their access to educator resources through our Lantern Teacher Education Program, School Starter Kits and Darakht-e Danesh Online Library.
