Afghan children in Iran receive same education as Iranian students: UNHCR

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Deputy Representative Inna Gladkova stated on Tuesday that Afghan children in Iran have access to educational facilities equivalent to those provided to Iranian students.
During a visit to Kerman Province, Gladkova, accompanied by ambassadors from Switzerland, France, and Austria, pointed out that approximately 10 percent of the province’s population consists of Afghan refugees.
According to IRNA, at many schools in the province, the refugee population outnumbers Iranian students.
Gladkova commended the Leader of the Islamic Revolution for ensuring that all Afghan children have access to the same educational opportunities as Iranian students.
She expressed her gratitude to the Iranian government for the services it provides to refugees and stated that her visit to Kerman provided a valuable opportunity to observe the challenges and projects affecting refugees.
She further noted that the UNHCR is well aware of the Iranian government’s considerable efforts to assist a large refugee population in Kerman.
Gladkova concluded that Iran’s strategy of incorporating a significant refugee population into its national policies is of great significance to the international community.
