As of 2021, literacy rate in Afghanistan is about 37%, that means nearly 26 million Afghans out of 42 million could not read or write. Due to new political changes, nearly two million girls have been prevented from attending secondary school, about 3 million families internally displaced and another million families left Afghanistan recently adding to the millions of Afghans refugees living around the world. In some countries, these refugees have little to no access to school.
Liwal Digital School is providing a system for these tens of millions of Afghans to self-learn and get formal recognition for their efforts. According to a survey in Khyber Pashtunkhwa 4.7 million children aged 5-16 are not attending schools, 2.9 millions are girls and 1 million of them are living in tribal areas, where majority of them could be Afghans.
In short, 70% of Afghans cannot go to school due to lack of school, teachers and books or poverty, social, political restrictions and other problems. Liwal Digital School is removing all these barriers. In addition to the above, in Afghanistan, formal education is limited to Madrasa and schools with in person presence only and not utilizing alternative ways such as distance schools, home schools, open schools, virtual schools and dozens of other accepted norms for schooling which further complicates the problem. Liwal Digital School, with the help of technology and modern ways, provide a schooling facility to millions of Afghans in and outside of Afghanistan to learn at any age, anywhere and in anyway, and get official schooling certificate and progress.
