Afghan Kot girls’ school
Being in a safe and attractive area, this girls’ school has seen a significant increase of students in recent years and has had to reject hundreds of girls from IDP families. It is expected that the increase will continue. In 2018, 2.052 girls were registered at the school (discounting long term absentees) and by 2023, the school would have to accommodate a projected 2.380 girls.
The girls receive education in three shifts and can be 38 students in a small classroom. Compared to one and two shifts this means reduced time for education and reduced curriculum. Education in three shifts is therefore of lower quality than in one or two shifts.
Given the pressure on the school, DAARTT is constructing a 42 classroom building. This will be able to accommodate all girls and eliminate the need for three shift education. The school will have space for headmasters’ and teachers’ rooms and laboratory, room for IT education, etc. and be able to house about 1.368 girls per shift.
