Education Biggest Victim Of Taliban Resurgence In Afghanistan
“Education is under fire in Afghanistan” UNICEF said this as attacks on schools tripled between 2017 and 2018, surging from 68 to 192. More than 1,000 schools closed by 2018-end depriving half a million children of education. Around 3.7 million children between the ages of 7 and 17 are out of school in Afghanistan, which is nearly half of all school-aged children. But girls’ schools are the main target in Afghanistan too, just like the situation witnessed in Pakistan.
