dc.description.abstract This presentation explains how the Afghan Ministry of Education is developing the education system. According to Dr Wahidyar, ten years ago, Afghanistan's education system was in tatters. There were fewer than one million children in school and there were hardly any girls. There was no unified curriculum and education in many of the more troubled areas depended on the goodwill of non-government organisations. A decade on, with support from the Government of Afghanistan and international donors, it is a different story. There are more than seven million children in school and about four in every ten are girls. Australia alone has financed the construction of 30 schools with another 36 underway in Uruzgan province, one of the country's poorest areas. en
