Third Party Monitoring of Education Services (community-based education and public schools) in Afghanistan

For nearly two decades, the Afghanistan Government has supported the establishment of community-based education (CBE) mechanisms to reach isolated populations and those affected by conflict and war.

Along with the formal school system, UNICEF continuously supports the Afghan government’s Community-Based Education (CBE) programme, establishing Community-Based Schools (CBS) and Accelerated Learning Centres (ALC) within a three-kilometre range of each child’s community. UNICEF also supports the distribution of classroom materials, teaching, and learning materials (TLM) and textbooks to CBEs and public schools, in addition to the GATE programme that aims to provide basic numeracy and literacy education and life skills to out-of-school adolescent girls. ACT for Performance and its local partners, PPC work closely with UNICEF to monitor the situation and the monthly progress of the program implementation in the course of the year 2022 and 2023, as a third-party partner, in 23 provinces of Afghanistan.
