Minister of Education Asadullah Hanif Balkhi, U.S. Ambassador P. Michael McKinley, United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission Director William Hammink and UNICEF Deputy Country Representative Dr. L.N. Balaji celebrated an innovative Community-Based Education program on Aug. 30.
USAID has been helping the Afghan government to increase children’s access to basic education since 2002.

Community-Based Education is a proven means to reach children who are unable to access formal schools due to insecurity, distance or geographical constraints.
