For over a decade, CW4WAfghan equipped schools with learning materials including School Library Starter Kits and School Science Lab Starter Kits.
CW4WAfghan understands that learning begins at birth. We also know that learning at home can be equally as important as learning at school. In 2020 we started distributing Learning Baskets so families would also have access to high quality, local language learning material. The baskets contain materials for all members of the family to nurture learning at home, including storybooks, literacy activities, recipes, and more.
Learning Plus Baskets are Learning Baskets plus essential food staples that help vulnerable families facing precarious economic conditions gain food security. The food items are related to the learning materials—such as recipes that use the food items in the basket—so that the items in the basket complement each other.
As Afghanistan faces a worsening economic crisis, the Learning Plus Baskets are an increasingly essential lifeline for families. Further, as schools remain closed for girls past primary age, the materials for home learning allow the continuation of learning during the human rights crisis facing millions of girls and young women across the country.
