Providing community-based education in rural Afghanistan 

Improving access and equity for marginalized groups is one of CRS’ strategic priorities in education. The agency has made this a priority in Afghanistan since 2002 by supporting an Accelerated Learning program for rural children and youth who had previously missed out on schooling. Today, CRS supports community-based education in villages such as Shah Mohammad’s as part of the Partnership for Advancing Community Education in Afghanistan (PACE-A). PACE-A is a USAID-funded project that CRS implements in collaboration with the Aga Khan Foundation, CARE and the International Rescue Committee.
