star this property answer text <p>Afghanistan has seen huge progress in the provision of education services – the school enrolment rate has increased from under 1 million children in 2001 to over 9 million today. However, there is still a long way to go. A recent report by UNICEF and the Afghan Ministry of Education estimates that nearly half of school-age children – some 3.7 million children - are out of school. Approximately 60% of Afghanistan’s out-of-school-children are girls. There are too few schools in Afghanistan, and many children cannot access school without travelling long distances over insecure environments. Educational provision often does not take into account the particular needs of girls: for example schools in many provinces lack female teachers, sanitation facilities and boundary walls. The UK is supporting the Government of Afghanistan to improve access to education services for all – particularly girls and the most marginalised – and to improve the <em>quality</em> of those services. We are doing this by investing in innovative and scalable education programmes for girls, as well as technical and system-strengthening support to the Ministry of Education.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The floods have had a devastating impact on already vulnerable Afghan communities. The worst affected provinces are Kandahar, Helmand, Herat and Farah. More than 40 people are known to have died, and hundreds of others have been injured or are missing. According to the Government, more than 7,100 houses have been damaged and over 5,600 destroyed across Afghanistan. More than 50,000 people require humanitarian assistance.</p><p> </p><p>At present, the Afghan Government are leading efforts to respond. International organisations are helping them to assess the situation on the ground and respond directly with food, non-food items, hygiene kits, winter clothes and emergency shelter (tents). DFID is closely monitoring what is happening and we stand ready to assist as and when our support is requested or required.</p><p> </p><p>The UK is at the forefront of the international humanitarian response in Afghanistan. As a result of UK funding, up to two million Afghans received lifesaving assistance in 2018, including hundreds of thousands of Afghans affected by one of the worst droughts the country has ever faced. Our assistance includes shelter and heating support to help displaced people face the winter, as well as food assistance, lifesaving health &amp; nutrition services, clean water, and demining activities.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We are extremely concerned about the impact of the deadly drought last year in Afghanistan. The UK is providing life-saving assistance to hundreds of thousands of Afghans affected by one of the worst droughts the country has ever faced, including vital food and shelter. We provided emergency food aid in July last year to 432,000 people to enable them to remain in their homes. UK Aid has also supported tents and urgent relief items for up to 260,000 people who are facing a severe winter away from their homes; cash transfers for 190,000 people to buy essential items; and special nutritious food for 90,000 children and pregnant women to prevent malnutrition. And, by contributing to the UN appeal, UK funds are reaching more people in need with food assistance. As the scale of the drought became clear over the course of the year, we increased our funding for the drought response to £35 million, bringing DFID’s total spend on the humanitarian response in Afghanistan to £67 million in 2018. This support is helping some of Afghanistan’s most vulnerable people.</p><p> </p>

These are identified in line with the humanitarian principles of neutrality and impartiality and therefore support is delivered irrespective of status or political control. On this basis, no single religious or ethnic group, including Afghan Sikhs, has been allocated a specific proportion of humanitarian support from DFID.</p> more like this

We particularly focus on preventing and treating undernutrition among infants and young children and improving the nutrition of women and adolescents. As part of this, we are strengthening essential health, nutrition and social protection services in a number of countries so that these can better protect the food security and nutrition of people affected by climate shocks and other crises. DFID also monitors early warning data and works with governments and operational partners to put in place the best possible early response if food insecurity and malnutrition deteriorates.</p> more like this
