Teacher Training

388511_437680739650340_1969167154_n.jpgOver 5 million Afghan students are in school today.

With approximately 150,000 teachers currently working in Afghanistan, the country faces a dire shortage of trained professionals in its schools.

To add to the problem, Afghanistan’s Ministry of Education reported that, as of 2012, 80% of current teachers have not completed a high school education.

In partnership with Sahar Education International, AAFF maintains a training center for Afghan teachers.  To date, over 360 teachers have completed the two-year training program.

After completing the program and receiving their certification, many graduates return to teach in rural hometowns, where the teacher shortage is most strongly felt.
