Senior officials of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) attended a ceremony to mark Teachers’ Day in Kabul on Wednesday.

The ceremony was held at Amani High School.

“We should establish schools, madrasas, vocational training centers and universities wherever needed,” said Hanafi.

“The Islamic Emirate decided that we should pay all the personnel of the government from our own national funds,” Hanafi said.

According to officials of the education ministry, around 247,000 teachers are teaching across the country, and 10 million children are in schools.

“Teachers should perform their duties well. Teachers should take responsibility. They should consider it a responsibility,” said Abdulhaq Sadiq, deputy minister of education minister for quality.

“There are five stages in making curriculum, and the last stage is training of teachers. They should receive quality education,” said Noorulhaq Anwar, head of the administrative office of the prime minister.

Some teachers called on the government to launch capacity building programs for teachers.

“We should hand over what we owe to the right persons, otherwise our youths who are a source of hope of the people will be dragged to darkness,” said Burhanuddin Fazli, a teacher.

“Teachers should be given role in strengthening the education system,” said Shams-ur-Rahman, a teacher.

Some teachers complained about low salary and late payment.

“The salary teachers are getting does not suffice their expenses,” said Karimullah, a teacher.

“Teachers do not receive their salary on time due to which they can’t teach with a relaxed mind,” said Habib-ur-Rahman, a teacher.

International community must not forget Afghans: refugees minister



(Last Updated On: May 28, 2023)

The international community should not forget the Afghan people and should not politicize the humanitarian issue, the country’s minister of refugees and repatriation said on Sunday.

“We ask all the countries of the world to put politics, formalities and military issues aside. Immigration has its own rules. The ministry of refugees was created to solve the problems of refugees,” Khalil-ur-Rahman Haqqani said in an aid distribution ceremony in Kabul.

He noted that now that peace prevails throughout Afghanistan, the international community should cooperate with them in returning Afghan refugees instead of forcing Afghans to migrate.

“The international community should provide livelihoods and transportation facilities. The international community should not forget the people of Afghanistan,” Haqqani said.

In Afghanistan, many families struggle with poverty, so women and men stand in long queues to receive aid.

Among the needy women, there are also those who have even been forced to give their children to others out of poverty.

“I gave my daughter to my sister out of necessity. I could not afford bread and clothes for her,” Gulnar, one of the needy women said.

“My husband is jobless. We are four in our family,” Shakiba, another woman said.

Although aid is a short term solution to helping the needy, officials have called for large, sustainable programs in order to eradicate poverty.

“Ten aid items will be distributed. These materials are enough for a family of five to seven people for three months. We have also considered nutritional balance. For example, this aid includes flour, rice, dal, sugar, tea and salt,” said Fariduddin Nouri, head of Women for Afghan Women NGO.
