Women education in Afghanistan

Posted on at

     As education makes a country move towards developing, Afghan education improves gradually. Today, not only there are boys' schools, but also there are girls' schools. Almost more than a decade ago even there was no one girls' school in the Afghan proportion. But, today there is even coeducational system in Afghan Universities. Boys and girls do their lessons in the same class.

     There are, now, some innovative women in Afghanistan they participate even in building schools, and equipping schools with free internet classes. For instance, Roya Mahboob is one of those women who works on empowering women in education field. She is in charge of Afghan Citadel Software Company in Afghanistan. They have repaired and built about 9 girls' schools in Herat, Afghanistan. In addition, in one of Elaha Mahboob's articles on Film Annex's platform was written that this company (ACSC) will soon expand its activities not only across the country, but in the Southern and Asian countries, too.

Afghan Girls' Quotes


     I had some interviews with Herat, Afghanistan's girls. They are happy with their school teachers and lessons.


      Wazhmah is a 23-year-old girl who has already graduated from Atefi High School. She is on a seat in Park-e-Farhang studying a book. She said, "I am so happy that now Afghan girls can go to schools and do their lessons in order to develop their country. Now, I am getting preparation for the University entrance examination so that I enter to engineering faculty of Herat University." Wazhmah is one of those a million Afghan girls whose only ambition is to see her country well-developed.


        Latifah is also happy that now she goes to school and nobody prohibits her to receive education. She has got a laptop on her knees and typing something on Face book, and says, "Now, Afghan girls not only study computer programs at schools, but they study how to use from the social media such as Face book, Film Annex, Twitter, and mailing." She says that Afghan Citadel Software Company has already built free internet class at our school in Atefi High School. So, most of their school girls have learned the use of social media. "I am really happy," said Latifa.




      Fatimah is another 19-year-old girl who knows how to use from computer programs as well as she knows how to use from the social media. She says, "I do my researches, and homework assignments through internet I use at home and at school. I am so hopeful about having a great future."


     Afghan people are now absolutely vice versa with 12 years ago. Now, they are more eager to receive education. Besides, education places, such as private courses, private schools, private Universities, and state ones are all great opportunities for them in receiving education.
