More than seven million children do not have access to education in Afghanistan, according to the ministry of education, who calls war and security situation as the main reasons.

“7.3 million children in Afghanistan are deprived from education that unfortunately 60 per cent of them are girls,” Nooria Nozhat, the ministry’s spokeswoman said on Wednesday.

She said war, insecurity, poverty and conservative traditions deprive the children from going to school.
