Improved Schools Increase Girls' Education Enrollment in Afghanistan

  • 0

In Afghanistan's southeastern Khost city, the construction of a school building has boosted girls' enrollment. The Matoon Sarnakot Secondary School received support from the Education Quality Improvement Program (EQUIP) for building construction, which replaced tents. The improved facilities have encouraged more parents to send their children to school, especially girls whom make up 650 out of 1,400 students. It is one of 38 schools that have received construction support and 365 schools in Khost Province that has benefited from the EQUIP program. *** TRANSCRIPT Every morning, students line up in the school yard of Matoon Sarnakot Secondary School, and listen to the recitation of the holy Quran before going to their classes in single file in the building built by the Education Quality Improvement Program. Before the building was built, students studied in tents in the open. [Malmir Eamal, Principal, Matoon Sarnakot Secondary School ] The school was inaugurated in 2010. In the beginning there were only 300 to 350 students enrolled. But the numbers increased and today we have 1,400 male and female students enrolled. We used to hold classes in the afternoon in hot weather. It was 2013 when the program built our school building, which has made life much easier for us. We feel protected from the weather and the studies are going very well. The new school building has enhanced the learning environment and encouraged more children to enroll. Student enrollment has been boosted by the increase in girls enrolling Today 650 out of the 1,400 students are girls. [Abdul Nasir Haqmal, Provincial Program Officer, Khost province] There are 365 schools active in Khost Province. Thanks Allah Almighty, to date we do not have any schools that are closed throughout the province and it shows the development of education in our society. [Sabrina, Student, Matoon Sarnakot Secondary School] Our teachers come on time, sign their attendance sheet, and teach us according to our schedules. Our school management and the teachers work together on all school affairs. When we didn’t have a school building, we used to study in tents and even on the ground with no cover. Now that we have a building, it feels good to study in the classrooms. The Education Quality Improvement Program, which closed on December 31, 2017 worked to increase access to quality basic education, especially for girls, across the country. It was first funded by the World Bank and was co-financed by the Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund.
