AFGHANISTAN – Italy contributes to education

Italy made a new contribution to distance learning in Afghanistan through a technical agreement was signed in Kabul confirming a contribution of €920,000 to the initiative “Educational Radio and TV of Afghanistan – Ertv” aimed at expanding broadcast coverage to add 10 new provinces to the 7 already receiving, which include Kabul, Balkh, Herat, Kandahar, Paktia, Bamiyan and Nangarhar.

Distance learning plays an especially important role in Afghanistan where mountainous terrain, a lack of infrastructure and socio-cultural rigidity combine to make access to education in rural areas difficult.
