“This year the Director General of UNESCO Audrey Azoulay decided this international day to girls and women in Afghanistan, who have been, as everybody knows deprived, of their right to education. Currently, all Afghan girls and women above the age of 12 are denied access to secondary schools and, more recently, to universities following the decisions of the de facto authorities.”

“A basic human right is at risk and adjust the listening to the voices of these girls and women, young women who talk to us, to all the community, also the international community connected with us today. And they say very simply, they put it very simply. Mean, okay, as at the UN you have to discuss with the de facto authorities and to develop the political diplomatic conversation with them about… But please work on the ground, work for people there, especially women and girls and weak people there. Otherwise, you're ready learned the lessons from the past. So that's also the message which comes to us concretely from those who are most affected.”

“The idea of scholarships cannot, in my opinion, cannot for the next month, as we see the situation now, it is involving, will be still at stake.

We are thinking of an alliance of universities for instance, to make this a huge responsibility, a collective afford to host Afghan girls and women in the coming months.”

“I mentioned the radio channel as the most effective tool to reach out from Kabul, at least because as far as you know, connectivity is not a common good for all the rural zones. I think that courses, lessons in classrooms online cannot be a solution for the entire country.”
