The on-going conflict has killed millions, and placed Afghanistan at the bottom of nearly every measure in the Human Development index, including infant mortality, maternal mortality and literacy rates. It has also created the world’s largest refugee population.A humanitarian crisis of incredible proportions has grown even more complex and severe since the Taliban took control. Job losses, lack of cash and soaring prices are creating a new class of hungry in Afghanistan. According to WFP update on food insecurity, 22.8 million Afghans or more than half the population are not consuming enough food. The country is on the brink of economic collapse, with the local currency at an all-time low and food prices on the rise. Acute malnutrition is above emergency thresholds in 25 out of 34 provinces, and is expected to worsen, according to UNICEF during the past 4 months 3.3. million children had no access to sufficient food. Women and girls face great uncertainty when it comes to respecting their rights to education, livelihoods, and participation. Some 4.2 million young Afghans are already out of school, from which 60 percent of them aregirls. There has also been a decline in girls’ secondary school attendance, even in provinces where the de facto authorities have permitted them to attend schools due to the absence of women teachers, since in some locations girls are only allowed to be taught by women.
