The number of girls in Afghanistan who are going to school has increased significantly since the former Taliban government was deposed in 2001, but obstacles remain, according to the United Nations.

The UN has been supporting the Afghan government in its efforts to have more children at school.

A law was passed in 2009 which criminalizes people who prohibit girls from accessing education.
