Steps towards Afghan girls' education success

October 2016 - Nearly three out of four Afghan girls do not receive formal education. To help address the obstacles to girls’ school enrolment, retention and learning, the Aga Khan Foundation has been leading a consortium of partners to implement a UK Department for International Development (DfID) funded programme called Steps Towards Afghan Girls’ Education Success (STAGES). Since 2013, STAGES has brought together more than 351,000 Afghan people (including teachers, students and community members) to help improve girls’ education. As a result, 135,000 girls living in some of the country’s most remote provinces have gained access to school. This video provides an overview of STAGES and its impact to date.
