Summary:

  • Her heartbreaking query demonstrates how the Taliban’s recent ban on girls attending secondary school and universities—effectively ending educational opportunities for all Afghan girls and women—is violating their fundamental human right to education and shattered countless hopes and dreams in an instant, in addition to violating the Taliban’s own rule.

  • Budgets for education need to be expanded and safeguarded, especially in crisis-affected nations where they fell by two-thirds following the start of COVID-19. Girls’ needs should be considered at all stages of programming to strengthen education systems and combat gender inequity and exclusion.

  • At the Global Refugee Forum in December this year, governments should commit to providing inclusive, high-quality education for internally and externally displaced children and youth.

  • For partners like Plan International and others to be able to implement the crucial programmes required, Education Cannot Wait must be fully funded with a minimum of US$1.5 billion in additional resources over the next four years.

This young Afghan girl’s succinct call for education has captivated the attention of the entire globe. Her heartbreaking query demonstrates how the Taliban’s recent ban on girls attending secondary school and universities—effectively ending educational opportunities for all Afghan girls and women—is violating their fundamental human right to education and shattered countless hopes and dreams in an instant, in addition to violating the Taliban’s own rule.

Millions of other girls worldwide who are enduring humanitarian disasters are also denied the opportunity to attend school. Their inability to study is sometimes a result of a mix of factors, including famine, conflict, and the effects of harsh weather brought on by the climate crisis. The fact that they are females also implies that because of gender inequity, their rights and education are frequently not given priority.

For instance, the current impact of famine on girls’ educational possibilities in the Horn of Africa, the Sahel, Haiti, and other global hotspots is significant.
