Afghan Girls Access to Education (AGATE)
After the fall of the Islamic Republic Government of Afghanistan, the country fell into chaos and anarchy.Over a year later, people are struggling with a Humanitarian crisis.There are more and more restrictions. Soon after they gained control, the Taliban closed girls’ schools without any notification of a planned reopening date.In the new academic year in Afghanistan, girls of grades 7 and above were not allowed to enter school and went back to home with tear in their eyes.These restrictions will affect education destructively not only for the short term, but for many years to come.Girls in Afghanistan are left at home without any hope for their future.
In response to this situation, a group of people with a shared passion, some in Afghanistan and some abroad, decided to start a volunteer initiative (Education Bridge for Afghanistan/EBA) and Migranten Omid Verein e.V. became their partner to raise funds to launch an online education platform to provide education for at least a proportion of the girls who are left at home. The team worked hard to design a good online school where students can study easily. The online school is now running, with more than 200 students registered and sitting classes. There is currently a waiting list because of lack of resources and funds to pay teachers’ salaries. By donating a small amount of €10 or more to this fundraiser, you can provide resources to give a child hope for the future and rescue Afghan girls' from being left uneducated.
