Each year tens of thousands of the school graduates are remained deprived of higher education opportunities, however, if we apply the international best practices and experience and engage more youth through distance learning programs, we will be able to build the capacities of these young people and tremendously contribute to the reduction of unemployment.

The Institute is introducing and looking forward to promoting the distance learning system in the country so that the young people and those interested in learning and education are having adequate opportunities to develop their personal and educational skills and take part in building a prosperous Afghanistan.
