Attack on educational facilities concerning, ACBAR

The ACBAR NGO members is concerned about a recent increase in attacks against schools and education personnel in parts of the country.
This NGO works about 18 years and has made progress in developing education in Afghanistan, as it endangers the lives and safety of Afghan children and their teachers, and undermines citizens trust and faith in their education system.
Education is highly affected in conflict areas throughout the country. Also, there is a significant increase of election-related violence as 60% of all designated voter registration centers and polling stations are located in schools.
ACBAR members therefore recommend that:
– The Afghan government should implement the Oslo Safe Schools Declaration (2015).
– International Development Partners should prioritize education as part of their humanitarian responsibilities:
– The Afghan government and its national and international development partners should increase investments towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4, ensuring that all Afghan boys and girls can complete primary education of good quality by 2030.
– Relationships between communities and schools are strengthened through targeted government action-this will help to protect schools and make them more resilient against attacks.
– The Afghan government should reform the Election Law 2016 and not designate schools and clinics for voter resignation and polling.
– The Afghan government must support education for all, make a connection between education and peace-building via school curricula to break the circle of violence. So Afghanistan can develop towards prosperity and peace.
