Audit of USAID/Afghanistan’s Partnership for Community-Based Education in Afghanistan Program.

Country: Afghanistan
Fiscal Year: 2010
Agency: USAID
Audit Report Available: Yes
Description:

According to the Afghanistan National Development Strategy, Afghanistan has the highest proportion of school-aged children (aged 7–12) in the world: about one in five Afghans is a school-aged child. However, half of all school-aged children remain out of school. Among Afghans aged 15–24, the most educated part of the population, only 34 percent are literate—about 50 percent for males and 18 percent for females. To expand the quality of learning and life opportunities for marginalized communities and their children in Afghanistan, by increasing access to community-based education, USAID/Afghanistan awarded a $24 million cooperative agreement in April 2006 to CARE International. The program’s objectives include conducting classes, training teachers, creating demand and awareness, building capacity of the community and local organizations, and establishing quality programs in remote areas.

This audit will determine whether USAID/Afghanistan’s Partnership for Community-Based Education in Afghanistan Program is increasing access to community-based quality education.
