About the Service


The International Rescue Committee (IRC) supports the non-formal education of girls and boys by providing educational materials in the Gurbaz district of Khost province. 

The IRC conducts a special assessment to identify vulnerable villages and establish training classes and provide educational grounds. After identifying the local educational centers, the IRC office distributed teaching materials like lined notebooks, drawing notebooks, colored pencils, bags, slate boards, water bottles, permanent markers, correction pens, scientific calculators, and cloth masks for the students and teachers. 

The International Rescue Committee is committed to ensuring that girls and boys have access to education and encourages communities to recognize education as a human need.
