Being a Female Teacher – Amidst Social and Economic Uncertainty

Ensuring that known and trusted individuals continue to teach is particularly critical for children and youth affected by emergencies, conflict and crisis. In Afghanistan and Pakistan, if female teachers running classes for girls in their homes are forced to give up, there are serious implications for access to education, especially for girls. In many locations girls‘ education is dependent on communities knowing and trusting certain teachers. To provide children with quality and sustained education, it is critical to ensure that teachers receive support to continue teaching and to further develop their skills.
