    Great IDEA (Girls’ Rights to Education in Afghanistan through Innovative Distance Education)

    From a television studio in Kabul, an experienced teacher broadcasts classes in four science subjects such as Maths, Chemistry, Biology and Physics. This is broadcasted live to classroom televisions in 62 schools in Parwan, Kapisa, Panjsher and Kabul provinces. After the 20-minute lesson, the students and teachers are able call the studio, in real time, and ask the teacher in Kabul questions about the lesson. They can also phone and leave messages for the master trainer who will provide answers to the questions in the next telecast lesson.

    To raise awareness of the importance of education, especially for girls, a drama, Maktab-e-Sokhta (Burnt School), has also been developed and is broadcast via radio.

This library provision is part of a larger programme to improve girls’ schools and teaching quality across the country.
