TiKA Provides Support For Education in Afghanistan


The Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TiKA) has set up two new studios inside Mirac TV, a network that broadcasts education and cultural programs across Afghanistan.

The studio designs were specifically created to satisfy distance education requirements, considering the major section of the population lacking literacy and the country’s limited access to higher education, Yeni Safak reported.

The project seeks to increase access to education for people by using Miraç TV programs, focusing on rural areas of Afghanistan.

Arafat Deniz, the coordinator of TiKA Herat, Habibullah Ferahi, Veli Ah Behre, the manager of the Abdulvahid Behre Cultural Centre, and Ali Akber Zerrin, the director of the Afghan Education Institute, all attended the project’s inaugural ceremony.

TiKA Herat Coordinator Deniz stressed during the occasion that education is still a top priority in the country and said that TIKA’s commitment to supporting distance education circumstances addresses the current challenges in the education sector.

Since August 2021, women and girls have been banned from attending secondary education in the country. Meanwhile, the de facto authorities banned women from attending universities since last December.

Though the Taliban administration said it would be temporary, it has been almost two years since the girls were barred from their fundamental human rights amid a dire humanitarian crisis.
