Lecture: Education in Rural Afghanistan

08 February 2012

King's College, London

Dr Mohammad Khan Kharoti was the first person in his village to learn to read and write     

It was a huge achievement for a boy born into a nomadic family in southern Afghanistan.  He went on to train as a medic and now lives in the United States.  Dr Kharoti is now helping to give a new generation of Afghans a chance.  His Green Village Schools charity supports education for children in Shin Kalay village, Helmand province.  His lecture, ‘The Role of Education in Rural Afghanistan: Democracy and educated mothers in the case of Nad-e Ali district, Helmand’ will be chaired by Mike Martin, a previous speaker, and PhD student at the War Studies Department.
