The situation for children in Afghanistan is challenging, as the country has been affected by ongoing conflict, poverty, and limited access to education and healthcare. Many children in Afghanistan do not have access to quality education and face a range of barriers to attending school, including lack of schools in their communities, lack of resources and trained teachers, and cultural and social norms that discourage education for girls. Additionally, children in Afghanistan are at risk of exploitation, abuse, and violence, and many have been affected by the ongoing conflict in the country.
Child mortality is also a major concern in Afghanistan. According to data from the World Health Organization (WHO), the infant mortality rate in Afghanistan is about 50 deaths per 1,000 live births, and the under-five mortality rate is about 73 deaths per 1,000 live births. This is much higher than the global average and reflects the challenges children in Afghanistan face in accessing quality healthcare and other basic services.
Children and Youth are at the heart of everything Awesta is doing. We always keep in mind the 6 million Afghan children on the street, in the mines, and are used as labor in the manufacturing sector in the country.
Currently, we are supporting two different projects to produce children's books by sponsoring a team of artists and writers. More support is required to complete this project in a year team and launch five books in a mini-series that tells stories to children of age 2 to 7.
We welcome ideas and technical and financial support from our visitors to help us with our ongoing and upcoming projects. Please get in touch with us, and we would love to discuss our ideas and projects in detail.
Education in Afghanistan has seen significant changes in recent decades. After the fall of the Afghan government, we have made efforts to increase access to education, especially for girls who were largely denied education under the Taliban.
Employment in Afghanistan has been affected by ongoing conflict, weak economic growth, and limited job opportunities. The unemployment rate in Afghanistan is high, particularly among young people, and many Afghans struggle to find decent work.
We will launch our new initiative to provide health and wellness consultancy sessions through audio/video calls to the vulnerable people in Afghanistan. This initiative registers volunteer doctors in and outside the country to allocate a few hours of their time weekly and advise several registered patients weekly.
