Learning In Underground Schools

The Network of Community Schools for Girls in Afghanistan (Daricha) emerged in response to the Taliban’s ban on women’s education and work. Daricha is an independent organisation that aims to educate girls in Afghanistan through homeschooling, also known as “underground schools.” Daricha has over 4000 students and 110 qualified teachers in 20 provinces where regular in-person courses are being held, and the number of students enrolling in in-person classes is growing every day.

Daricha schools operating in seven provinces of Afghanistan are crucial in empowering young girls who may not otherwise have access to education due to political and social barriers. In fact, underground schools are currently the only option to provide secondary education for girls in Afghanistan. Our underground schools offer regular in-person classes in the provinces where the network is active, and there is an enabling environment to hold classes. The curriculum consists of core school subjects and specialised courses on various topics to equip students with essential academic knowledge and critical thinking skills.
