Nuristan's department of education said that 70 percent of schools in this province do not have buildings, and they must temporarily use tents at these schools to solve this problem.
According to the officials of the department, there are 214 schools in the province, of which only 60 have buildings.
"In order to make progress in building the structures, we constantly share this problem with every responsible institution to solve our problem,” said Mawlawi Taj Motamen, director of education in Nuristan.
Meanwhile, students and residents of Nuristan said that thousands of students in this province have been studying for years with difficulties and without buildings, which has had a negative impact on them.
"Our school is quite distant from the village, I want to learn, we have many problems in this school, we do not have a pen, a booklet, or a book. When it rains, our school is closed, and we study here in the sweltering heat. We ask that the government solve this problem,” said Habiba, a student.
"We are coming here from far villages, our road is damaged, we climb this mountain every day and we are afraid of falling. The government should create a school and a road for us so that we can easily come to our classes,” said Aisha, another student.
Residents and teachers in Nuristan say that in addition to a lack of school buildings in the region, there is also a lack of educational materials in the schools. They urged the Islamic Emirate to pay serious attention to their problems.
“I had been teaching them under the shade of trees, and we have no pens or paper," said Mohammad Hanif, a teacher.
"I am very happy that students are coming and studying,” said Shah Khan, a resident of Nuristan.
According to official figures, there are presently 36,000 students enrolled in 214 schools in the province of Nuristan, 16,000 of them are female, but female students above sixth grade are still not allowed to attend schools in this province.
