A new report by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) sheds light on distressing developments within Afghanistan’s education sector. The findings indicate a substantial deterioration in both access to and the quality of education following the Taliban’s takeover, posing severe consequences for the nation’s future.

One of the revelations in the report is the indirect benefit the Taliban is gaining from U.S.-funded education assistance through various channels. These channels include the establishment of deceptive non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to receive donor aid and the infiltration and extortion of existing Afghan NGOs engaged in educational support.
