The European Special Representative for Afghanistan once again emphasized the request of the international community to reopen girls' schools in Afghanistan.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA): Thomas Nicholson, the European Union's special representative for Afghanistan, said last night on the occasion of the International Day of the Girl (October 11) that all girls at any age should have access to education.
Nicholson expressed his hope that "teachers, engineers, doctors, architects, civil servants and female businessmen will build a more prosperous Afghanistan tomorrow together with their brothers."
Also, Hederbar, the deputy director of the Women's Division of Human Rights Watch, called the International Day of the Girl in Afghanistan sad.
Ms. Bar published a photo of young female students and wrote that this photo was taken a few years ago and now the girls seen in the photo have reached the age of secondary school students. But they have been forced to leave education due to the ban on education.
On the other hand, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said in a message on the occasion of the International Day of the Girl Child that he is very concerned about the continued exclusion of girls from school in Afghanistan.
He added that the closure of girls' schools in Afghanistan "is very damaging to the girls themselves and to the country that desperately needs their energy and participation."
Guterres once again asked the Islamic Emirate to allow girls to study.
This is despite the fact that the gates of girls' schools above the sixth grade have been closed to students for more than a year.
