We've all been watching the situation in Afghanistan since the Taliban took control in August. The future for children there, and their education, is uncertain.
Children’s education cannot wait. Without access to school, they'll be left behind and made more vulnerable, without a safe space to learn.
Samim*, 8, said he misses his class and teachers, adding "I wish schools opened back up". Afri*, 12, said school closures meant "all my wishes would not come true". And Ferhana*, 11, wrote "We have to study to have a useful future".
With their families, children in the UK discussed the situation of Samim, Afri and Ferhana, and their education, and then created letters and drawings of solidarity.
We want children in Afghanistan to hear us loud and clear - ‘you are in our hearts and minds – we care about your future.’
