The Education Cannot Wait fund has invested more than $58 million in education in Afghanistan since 2017, some of it through emergency responses and some through a multiyear resilience program launched in 2019. Owing to the dedicated work of our partners, this funding has reached 51% of Afghanistan’s young female students and more than 181,000 girls and boys altogether.

Every Afghan girl deserves a place in school

Thousands of women and girls have taken to the streets of Afghanistan’s cities to protest the repeated violation of their right to an education. The trigger for the protests – occurring simultaneously with protests in Iran – was last month’s terrorist attack on an education center in Kabul that killed 53 students and injured more than 110 – most of them girls and young women. But this was just the latest in a long series of attacks against female students, many of which targeted girls from the Hazara community.

Education for Peace & Security: UN Day Statement by Education Cannot Wait Director Yasmine Sherif

Since its formation in 1945, the United Nations has stood as a universal symbol of hope and humanity. The UN Charter encompasses our vision for sustainable development, respect for human rights, and maintenance of peace and security.

It all starts with education. Education is the very foundation. Without education – especially for those suffering in wars, climate disasters and as forcibly displaced – how can we ever achieve the vision of the United Nations?

Afghanistan's girls and women fight back

Thousands of women and girls have taken to the streets of Afghanistan’s cities to protest the repeated violation of their right to an education. While the Education Cannot Wait fund and its partners, including UNICEF, the Norwegian Refugee Council, and Save the Children, continue to try to reach these girls, the Taliban ban has undoubtedly forced many more girls out of school.

TRANSFORMING EDUCATION, TRANSFORMING THE WORLD

 Leaders from across the world came together last month at the UN Secretary-General’s Transforming Education Summit to address a global education crisis that threatens to derail decades of development gains and is depriving millions of girls across the world of their inherent human right to access a quality education. Education Cannot Wait, as the UN’s global fund for education in emergencies and protracted crises, champions these transformational approaches designed to be responsive in the midst of brutal crises by delivering with humanitarian speed and developmental depth to ensure no child or adolescent is left behind.
