<<Freezing weather kills at least 124 in Afghanistan
News Center- The official spokesperson of the Afghan Ministry for Disaster Management announced that at least 124 people have died and about 70,000 livestock have perished due to the freezing cold in
the country. The spokesperson also reported that many areas of Afghanistan were now completely cut off by snow and military heli-copters had been sent to the rescue, but they could not land in the most mountainous regions. This year, Afghanistan suffers from the coldest winter in a decade. Since the Taliban have stopped the
activities of national and international aid organizations, Afghan people are left unaided.>>

News Center-The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has announced on its official Twitter account that UNESCO has dedicated the 2023 International Day of Education to Afghan girls and women, who have been deprived of their right to education. On December 3, 2018, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution proclaiming January 24 as International Day of Education, in celebration of the role of education for bringing glo-bal peace and sustainable development. On January 24, 2019, the first International Day of Education was celebrated. Since then, the International Day of Education is annually observed all around the world. The theme of the 2023 International Day of Education is 'Invest in people; prioritize education'.
According to the statement published on the UNESCO's website, UNESCO will host an event at the United Nations in New York today and UNESCO will renew its call on the Taliban to immediately restore girls and women's fundamental right to education. <Currently, 2.5 million (80%) of school-aged Afghan girls and young women are out of school, 1.2 million of whom were denied access to secondary schools and universities following the decision of the de facto authorities,> the statement said.>>

<<Afghan hospitals filled with children suffering from pneumonia
Doctors and aid workers in Afghanistan say thousands of children are being admitted to hospital with pneumonia and other respiratory diseases caused by the cold and malnutrition. The crisis, aid agencies say, is likely to get worse. A ban on female NGO workers has led to over 180 international organisations suspending opera-tions in the crucial winter months, saying they are unable to operate in the conservative country without female staff to reach out to women and children.>>

<<RAWA fights for women's rights in Afghanistan for 40 years
Kabul- The Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA) was founded in Afghanistan in 1977 to be the voices of Afghan women and to fight for their rights. Since its foundation, the association has carried out activities to support poor and oppressed women and to empower women’s political participation. The RAWA is now known all around the world as an independent political and social organization of Afghan women.
Secret schools for women
Against the misogynous and chauvinist policies of the Taliban, the RAWA has become the umbrella organization for women's political struggle. The RAWA also created secret schools, orphanages, nursing courses, and handicraft centers for women and girls in Pakistan and Afghanistan. In addition, the organization has made the inhuman practices of the Taliban heard all around the world. NuJINHA spoke to Yasmin Nawabi, member of the RAWA, about the activities of the organization.
Courses for women
Stating that their main aim is to support women, Yasmin Nawabi said, <Previously, RAWA opened literacy courses for women in remote areas of Afghanistan. After the Taliban took control of the country again, women and girls have been barred from school. Therefore, we have launched an initiative to organize science courses at home. We have also organized some training courses without using our organization's name.>
'We plant hope'
She added, <The aim of the courses is not only to teach science or English but also to build better relationships with people, particularly with women. Young girls do not have hope now. By organizing these courses, we aim to plant hope in their hearts and brains.> >>

Afghanistan's NGO ban for women exposes rifts in Taliban ranks
The Taliban's latest edict banning women from working for non-governmental organisations (NGOs) has sparked international con-demnation and domestic opposition in a country facing economic collapse. It has also revealed splits within the Taliban, with poten-tially high-stakes risks for Afghanistan's rulers and its people. The last week of 2022 began with an awful shock for Sahar H, a 24-year-old Afghan aid worker, and her new year started with severe anxiety.
On December 24 - the day after the Friday weekly holiday in Afghanistan - Sahar was on her computer in Kabul, preparing for an upcoming women-s support session. An NGO programme manager, Sahar did not want her real name, or that of her organisation's, re-vealed due to security concerns. Engrossed in her work, Sahar barely glanced at her mobile phone when it pinged a WhatsApp message. But when she saw the sender, a fellow NGO worker handling security issues at a partner organisation, it got her attention. The message contained the latest Taliban edict from the economy ministry and it was a shocker. Citing <serious complaints regarding the non-observance of the Islamic hijab>, the Taliban ordered <all national and international organisations to stop females working> imme-diately until further notice. Failure to comply would result in revoked licences, the edict warned. <I immediately stopped working, closed my computer and I just couldn't stop my tears,> said Sahar in a phone interview from Kabul. <I never thought this would happen. That day, I lost my most important right: the right to work.> The edict spelt economic disaster for Sahar's nine-member family. <All the male members of my family lost their jobs after the Taliban takeover. I was the only one with a job. I was the only one earning a salary and I was covering all the costs - for rent, food, medicines and my younger brothers' education. Now we are all affected, the whole country is affected,> she said. As the world welcomed 2023 with festive lights and fireworks, Afghanistan plunged deeper into a dark night of obscurantism. Over the past few months, the country's conservative Islamist rulers have blasted the myth of the <Taliban 2.0> narrative touted during negotiations to enable the 2021 US withdrawal from Afghanistan. They now appear hell-bent on ruining the lives of their fellow Afghans, eradicating women from public life and plunging the country into penury. Public outrage is mounting inside the country, with protests and walkouts erupting despite the harsh crackdowns on dissent. More significantly, there are growing signs of divisions within the Taliban over hardline policies. A tipping point, if it is reached, could have high stakes in a country with a history of settling differences at gunpoint, even civil war. And that could have consequences for the international community - as history has shown.
The 'Kandaharis' and 'Kabul Taliban'
Reports of rifts within Taliban ranks have increased since the edict banning women from working in NGOs was issued, and they come from well-informed sources. <Within the Taliban, this is a minority view. The majority, even in the leadership, is opposed to this deci-sion,> said former US special envoy to Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, in a phone interview from Washington DC.>>

<<Women in Afghanistan at forefront of resistance to Taliban. Fawzia Koofi, a former vice-president of the Afghan parliament, said the Taliban is trying to erase women from public life in Afghanistan. She fled to Britain after the group takeover in 2021. Girls and women have seen their rights curtailed and educations halted. And in the face of danger, some women are resisting. FRANCE 3's team and FRANCE 24's Antonia Kerrigan explain.>>
