The United Nations said that education gives children a ladder out of poverty and a path to a promising future, but nearly 258 million children and youth in the world do not have the opportunity to study or even complete it, and although more than 40 percent of them are of primary school age, they are Frustrated by poverty and the effects of climate change.

In addition to the 617 million children and adolescents, they cannot read and write, or even do basic arithmetic operations.

With the acceleration of climate change and the global problems facing poor countries, the United Nations decided to dedicate this day to Afghan girls and women, renewing its call for the immediate restoration of their basic right to education.

According to reports, eighty percent of Afghan girls and young women of school age are out of school, a figure that the United Nations seeks to reduce and mitigate its impact on society.

Speaking about the topic, the university professor and researcher on women’s issues, Dr. Noha Al-Afghani, told “Sky News Arabia”:

  • We have had a quantum leap in Afghanistan over the past twenty years, especially in the field of Afghan women, who have proven themselves at all levels.
  • Since the Taliban came to power, women have been excluded from life as a whole.
  • The straw that broke the camel’s back is the prevention of girls from education, and this is not accepted by the Afghan people who are aware of the importance of education.
  • Alternative options for closing schools lie in emigration and the search for places where girls can study.
  • Hope is always there, and internal and international pressures could force the Taliban to back down.
