Gul Mohammad, a resident of Badghis, said: “If girls’ schools are not opened, a segment of society will remain illiterate.” Juma Khan, another resident of Badghis, says: “It is good that our sisters become literate and the whole family is literate.” Meanwhile, girls above the sixth grade in Badghis say that they have been waiting for the reopening of their schools for more than a year.
