Humanitarian organizations say nearly half of the children in Afghanistan are out of school.
That’s according to a study conducted by some aid groups including UNICEF. The study shows some three-point-seven million children are unable to go to school due to the ongoing conflict. That accounts for 44 percent of Afghan children. The report also cited poverty and child marriage as other main reasons behind this. It says in some provinces, up to 85 percent of girls are deprived of education. Afghanistan has been ravaged by war since the US-led invasion in 2001.
