The World Food Programme in Afghanistan has announced that with the assistance of 10 million euros from the European Union, it aims to support the nutrition of girls and boys students in primary schools in Afghanistan.

The World Food Programme has stated in a statement on its social media page X that these aids will cover more than 10,000 schools in the provinces of Farah, Ghur, Jawzjan, Nangarhar, Nuristan, Paktika, Uruzgan, and Zabul.

Furthermore, it is stated in this announcement that student girls in grades four and six will receive assistance such as vegetable oil and cash, and more children in Afghanistan will receive nutritious food, while families will be encouraged to send their children to schools.

“Hunger can be an obstacle to better learning for students. They need to have the necessary energy and focus for effective and healthy learning. If these nutritional promises encourage parents to prioritize their children’s attendance in schools, it is beneficial for all the people of Afghanistan,” WFP added.

These aids by the World Health Organization for elementary students come at a time when 982 days have passed since the ban on girls attending school beyond the sixth grade in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, some time ago, Adam Wusornu, a UN official coordinating humanitarian aid of the United Nations (OCHA), stated that the Taliban’s restricting laws have deprived around 1.4 million women and adolescent girls in Afghanistan of their right to education.
