Empowerment through Education in Afghanistan (Phase 3)

CARE International in Afghanistan (CARE Afghanistan) has been implementing the Empowerment through Education (EEA) Project in Afghanistan since May 2011 and the project is now in its third phase. EEA works with communities in five Provinces (Ghazni, Kapisa, Khost, Paktia and Parwan) to set up a community-based education (CBE) program in rural and remote communities, where regular public schools are located far from villages and conservative social norms and safety concerns severely restrict girls’ mobility and access to schooling. Community-based education is a network of classes, often held in homes, that allow children, particularly girls, to access education in communities far from a government school.
