A report published by Human Rights Watch states that Afghan girls who have missed out on education are "three times more likely" to marry under the age of 18 than girls with secondary education.

The report states that Afghanistan's schools were in crisis before the spread of the Corona epidemic (Covid-19). With the increase in conflicts and the decrease in international aid, the number of children studying in many provinces is decreasing. 

The number of female students was low before, less than 36% of students in Afghanistan are girls. 

According to the report, 35 percent of Afghan girls are married at a young age and education outside of school is related to child marriage.In its report, it is emphasized that girls who are left out of education are more busy at home, social isolation and have less access to the Internet.

However, Human Rights Watch has asked the Afghan government and international supporters to try to minimize the impact of the virus on women and girls.
