An education program is being broadcast by some radio stations to provide lessons to girls above grade six.
The students who are participating in these programs said that they will reach out for education in any possible way.
The radio stations that are broadcasting these programs said they are trying to increase education opportunities for the female students.
Bigam radio station is one participant in the program, and broadcasts lessons for around six hours every day.
“We aimed to establish a substitute for school lessons that are closed for girls currently so the girls can take advantage of it and can use this opportunity,” said Saba Chaman, head of the radio station.
Arman radio stations broadcast school lessons for grades 7-12 for around one hour per day.
“We have tried to establish a program and an environment for these students who are physically away from education,” said a teacher at Arman radio station.
Meanwhile, students once against voiced concern over the closure of their schools, saying that they are faced with an uncertain future.
“We have increased our hopes. We have begun many efforts to reach our goal,” said Sunbol, a student.
“If we are studying, we are studying for the future of this country. This country of ours will develop,” said Fareshta, a student.
Speaking at the US Institute of Peace (USIP), the US special envoy for Afghanistan Thomas West said that the majority of people in Afghanistan want their daughters to be educated.
Earlier, UNICEF said in a report that if the current cohort of three million girls were able to complete their secondary education and participate in the job market, girls and women would contribute at least US$5.4 billion to Afghanistan’s economy.
