After the ban on girls’ education and work in Afghanistan, the only opportunity to educate girls is virtual education, which is only possible if there is access to the Internet.
In order to compensate for the restrictions created for Afghan girls, educational centers at the international level have provided virtual education to Afghan students for free, or they have provided scholarships and grants for them.
Here we will get to know a number of international universities and educational centers that are trying to help Afghan girls and provide them with educational opportunities:
