Malala Fund works to reverse the devastation to Afghanistan’s education system after more than 40 years of conflict. Education Champions identified two main objectives to improve access to safe, free and quality education for Afghan girls: addressing a nation-wide shortage of female teachers through recruitment and improving education quality and learning outcomes by investing more in teacher training development.
Malala Fund believes that achieving progress requires action at multiple levels — sub-national, national and global — to achieve lasting impact for girls’ education.
"Afghanistan has one of the youngest populations in the world — I believe that it could be our greatest asset."
— Rahmatullah Arman, CEO of Teach for Afghanistan
Today, Malala Fund supports 8 Education Champions in Afghanistan.
