Afghanistan

Three decades of war, socio-economic and political conflict, and repression have  devastated Afghanistan’s educational system, which was already at  a low level. During this time, an estimated 80% of trained teachers and university professors either fled the country or took other jobs.In 2011, WUSC began an initiative to establish a system for the certification of teachers and the accreditation of teacher training institutions in Afghanistan. 

Previously, WUSC worked in Afghanistan offering women opportunities to develop employment skills and contribute to rebuilding efforts in the country.
