This is the completion report of GPE’s program in Afghanistan, which ran from 2012 to 2018. Overall, it appears education access and equity has been improved in target districts, and some of these effects promise to persist beyond the program period.
Community engagement in schooling has also improved, as well as school performance. Target schools have safer and more conducive learning environments for children, and monitoring of education pathways has also improved.
Schools have been reopened, and numbers of female teachers in target areas have grown. Finally, the Ministry of Education and national education sectors have seen advances in institutional capacity, and national aid coordination mechanisms also seem to have improved.
