KABUL, AFGHANISTAN – The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in close collaboration with the Afghanistan Ministry of Education (MoE) announced today the official launch of Afghan Children Read (ACR), a five year project in Early Grade Reading (EGR) for primary grades 1 to 3.

Despite the gains made in education in Afghanistan, access to quality education remains a challenge. To help reverse the situation, USAID is investing $70 million in the ACR Project.  This project will help to improve early grade reading skills for primary level students, boys and girls, in grades 1-3 in formal and community based education (CBE) schools. The ACR project will enable the MoE to utilize the best practices of EGR standards towards improving the primary level student’s literacy and learning skills at large.
