Defiant Afghan girls pursue education at secret schools

Kabul province (Afghanistan) (AFP) – ‘Nafeesa’ goes to a secret school in Afghanistan. And to add risk to an already tough situation, her brother is with the Taliban. “I use madrasa as an excuse to come here. My brother doesn’t know that I come to school – only my mother supports me” says Nafeesa, one of hundreds of thousands of girls and young women deprived of the chance of education with the Taliban in power.
