A Study of the Girls' Education Support Programme (GESP)

In Afghanistan, a lack of schools and school infrastructure, along with nearly three decades of armed conflict, poverty and climate-related disasters have had a direct negative impact on children's access to education. A shortage of qualified teachers and learning materials also contribute to the country’s low school attendance rate. While the gender gap is narrowing, a large percentage of girls still do not have access to school education.
