Mobile Teacher (Ustad Mobile)

Afghan women learn to read and write using mobile phones on Nov. 3 in Kabul through a program called Ustad Mobile (Mobile Teacher) developed by Paiwastoon, an Afghan IT company. While around a third of primary school children in Afghanistan are girls, female literacy rates are some of the world’s lowest at 12 percent, compared with 39 percent for men. Activists also fear that an ascendant Taliban will reverse advances in women's rights after the withdrawal of NATO troops in 2014.
