On the anniversary of the Taliban’s arrival in Afghanistan, NGOduco deplored the lack of girls’ access to secondary education in that country and warned that this situation “will shape their future and also the future of the country”.

“The ban on girls going to school is not only a major step backwards, it also puts them at risk for a variety of things, including forced marriage, exploitation and abuse,” said Pilar Orens, Director General of the NGO.

Similarly, he emphasized that “forcing them to deny their right to education” results in them “having the same experiences as their mothers did in the first Taliban regime.”

As the entity has explained, after the Taliban regime took control of Kabul, schools were closed for six months and reopened in the case of secondary schools for boys only.

In this sense, Educo also warns that the situation “is not much better for the country’s children”. As he explained, a total of 4 million boys and girls have had to drop out of school, while twice that number, 8 million, are in need of humanitarian assistance.

“The situation in Afghanistan has deteriorated over the last year and the country is on the brink of economic collapse,” according to the entity, which stated that “if in 2021 18.4 million people needed humanitarian assistance, in 2022 there will be 24, 4 million million”, which, by the way, makes up “more than half of the population”.

He also pointed out that in 2022, 97% of the population is expected to live below the poverty line, while in 2019 the percentage was 54%.
