Boys at school Going to school
More and more children are going to school.

During the strict Taleban rule, girls were banned from going to school.

Even before then, children in many rural areas didn't go to school.

The new government in Afghanistan is spending more money on education, so that:

  • Girls can go to school
  • School buildings can be rebuilt
  • Teachers will get paid
