Dr. Sardar Mohammad Rahimi, the deputy of literacy was not happy and satisfies with the process of education in the country. He said:" around 850- 900 schools are completely closed in the country due to insecurity and war and those schools that are operating are also facing obstacles and the process of teaching is not satisfactory. In
general the quality of education in both schools and courses is low and we are not satisfied with the achieved result.” Rahimi included:" since Hamed Karzay’s period till now the literacy deputy along with its national and international partners has educated around 40% but 60% of citizens remained illiterate due to insecurity and poverty in the country, from the total budget of Ministry of Education we have only one percent which is very low comparing to the needs of Literacy section.”
OPAWC is happy to have high score in educating women and have work honestly in this field and believe that the range of illiteracy in the country is higher than the percentage that has been announced by the deputy of literacy. OPAWC accepts all risks and promised to continue its reliable working in education field in the war thorn country.
