    CRS' 2016-2020 strategic plan for Afghanistan focuses on poverty and risk reduction and human development in western and central Afghanistan. CRS, with a focus on sustainability and scalability, works to: increase and diversify agricultural livelihood security and improve the quality of and children and youth's access to basic education while developing and strengthening l ocal capacities and facilitating men and women's meaningful participation.

    CRS Education Program Summary
    Education is highly valued in Afghanistan and since 2001 school enrollment has increased from 900,000 to more than 7.3 million children in 2011. Despite these gains, approximately 5 million school-aged children are still out of school, nearly 70% of whom are girls. In addition, only 26% of the population is estimated to be literate--which drops to 10% for women and girls in rural areas. In 2005, CRS Afghanistan initiated a long-term strategy for rural education based on the Community Based Education model (CBE) in western and central Afghanistan. CBE classes have brought hundreds of thousands of children into the education system in areas where villages are too far from a government school.

    The CRS/Afghanistan education program is currently implementing several multi-year community based education grants with various components of innovation: the DFID-funded/Girls Education Challenge, Aga Khan Foundation (AKF)-led Steps Toward Afghan Girls' Educational Success (STAGES) II program. STAGES II is a four year (2017-2021) follow on program supporting community based primary and lower secondary education across Bamiyan, Ghor, Daykundi and Herat Provinces.

EXCEL is being replicated in the Bamiyan Province beginning in 2018. Since 2016, CRS private funds are supporting over 50 additional CBE classes across CRS' four provinces of implementation.

    In addition to current programs, CRS is pursuing additional public and private funding for community based education, including alternate models such as multi-grade classrooms; teacher training in improved primary curriculum and innovations for MoE certification; and is considering need and opportunity for accelerated secondary education and early childhood development.

    Primary Role:
    The primary role of the Education Program Manager II is to oversee and guide the quality management, implementation, and strategic direction of the CRS education portfolio in Afghanistan.

    The Education Program Manager will supervise the Bamyan, Daykundi, Ghor, Herat and Kabul education programs, providing strategic and technica l support to teams and linkages with and between the programming teams, Afghanistan Ministry of Education at various levels, donors and other non-governmental actors and stakeholders.
