BBC News published this video item, entitled “Afghanistan’s secret girls school defying the Taliban – BBC News” – below is their description.
Hidden away in a residential neighbourhood is one of Afghanistan’s new “secret” schools. A small but powerful act of defiance against the Taliban.
“We do our best to do this secretly,” said the female teacher, “but even if they arrest me, they beat me, it’s worth it.”
In all but a handful of provinces in the country, girls’ secondary schools have been ordered to remain closed by the Taliban.
“We know about the threats and we worry about them,” the sole teacher told BBC, adding that girls’ education is worth “any risk”.BBC News YouTube Channel
