AKF Bamyan Teacher Training College Girls Dormitory

In Afghanistan, one of the key barriers to girls’ education is a lack of qualified female teachers. The Aga Khan Foundation’s Girls Education Support Programme undertook a number of initiatives to address this issue, including support for the Bamyan Teacher Training College. In 2015, it expanded the women’s dormitory at the college, with Canadian funding. As a result of the increased capacity of the dormitory, more students are now coming from across Afghanistan to study at the Bamyan Teacher Training College. Since 2015, the Afghan Government’s Ministry of Education has managed the operation of the dormitory, making it one of the Foundation’s most successful, sustainable interventions in Afghanistan.
