A teacher in Khost province cycles several kilometers each day to a village where he has been providing more than twenty children and teenagers free English lessons for the past five months.
Due to a lack of facilities and a suitable location for teaching, the classes take place in the open air. He said that on stormy or rainy days, some locals let him use their guest homes to teach children.
Nazratullah, the teacher in Khost, added that the students use carpets because there aren't any chairs available.
"There are around 20 to 25 children and young people who follow English lessons with us. There are also some young people who are not literate and come here to learn something,” Nazrullah noted.
Although the village does not have access to educational facilities, they are grateful that they get the chance to study English there for free.
"I work in a pottery factory. I come here to learn English for free after work’” said Imdadullah, a student.
"We have an English course here and we've learned a lot,” said Habibullah, a student.
When it's raining or storming, local resident Ali Marjan offers his home as a place to teach English.
"Sometimes, when there is a storm or rain, I open my house at that time and allow them to continue their studying," said Ali Marjan, a resident of Khost.
It is said that the land Nazaretullah and his students are using as a classroom is disputed territory between two tribes and might be taken from them when the matter is resolved.
