War and internal conflicts have destroyed or severely damaged all aspects of life, infrastructure and environment in Afghanistan. The Afghanistan Ministry of Education's plan for 2010 to 2015 is to increase the net enrolment in basic education for boys and girls from 65 percent and 40 percent, to 75 percent to 60 percent respectively. They are hoping ten million children, 42 percent girls, will be enrolled in general schools including children with special needs.
