In Afghanistan, 200,000 teachers are trying to teach under challenging circumstances: no libraries or science labs, sometimes no textbooks, and often no formal training; in fact, many teachers have no post-secondary at all. It can be difficult to find local language quality resources for learning and teaching, and many teachers have limited access to information on the subjects they teach. As a result, they lack confidence and rely on rote learning, and students have poor learning outcomes.
We are a multilingual digital repository of more than 3,500 open educational resources including lessons, exercises, experiments, backgrounders, work books, curricula, full texts such as children's stories and other resources for Afghan teachers to develop their knowledge on a subject or use in their classrooms, as well as general information on a range of subjects, in Afghan languages.
