Creating Peace with Education in Afghanistan
Since 2003, Aid Afghanistan for Education (AAE) has established 13 schools in 9 provinces. We aim to educate marginalized Afghans who were deprived of an education during the years of war or do not have access to the formal education system. Currently, more than 3000 female and 100 male students are attending AAE schools across Afghanistan.
We believe education is the only path to a peaceful and prosperous Afghanistan and every Afghan has the right to be educated.
Empowered and educated women are powerful changemakers in their communities. The longer a girl is in school, the longer she will wait to marry and have children. Women carry their education back to their communities to improve their family’s lives through better income. This means they can contribute to the well-being of their communities.
In Afghanistan, educating boys alongside girls moves the entire country forward. It minimizes family jealousies and blockades terrorist recruitment of children who are not in school. It all starts with women– but boys cannot be left out.
