A group of women in Herat have created an online educational program called Maktab to provide access to study subjects for female students above the sixth grade.
They said that female students can install the program on their phones and access all school subjects.
“We use this program “Maktab” so we can always have an open school for students so they can be educated,” said Maryam Muneeb, executive director of the school program.
They say schools and universities help them provide educational materials for this online program.
Meanwhile, some girls urged schools and universities to reopen in the country for girls.
“Few days remain in the new academic year and all girls are waiting for schools to reopen for them,” said Mahjabin, a student.
“We hope this new year that schools will be opened for girls and that they lift all restrictions and reopen all schools and universities,” said Parwen, a student.
While universities and schools remain closed for girls, the launch of online education courses for girls is considered an effective opportunity.
“Online education courses can be a good source of education for students,” said Khadijah Mukhtar Zada, a lecturer.
According to a current government decision, it has been more than one year that schools and universities have been closed for girls.
