Meet 5 Afghan girls determined to get an education

European Commission

These schoolgirls in Afghanistan are determined to get an education, no matter the obstacles.

Meet Bibi, Lialoma, Zahra, Sana, and Marzia – 5 intrepid girls that continue to dream big!

Afghan girls face significant challenges, such as growing up in remote villages without schools. In addition, all girls over the age of 12 are now barred from formal education.

With EU humanitarian support, they are trekking each day to math and literacy classes the International Rescue Committee (IRC) offers to children who cannot access education.

Girls like them and their families are also caught in the growing economic and hunger crisis that is making life more difficult for nearly all Afghans.
