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

An official from office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Iran says that all Afghan refugee students in the country have access to same educational facilities as their Iranian peers.

Inna Gladkova made the remarks on Tuesday during a visit along with Swiss, French and Austrian ambassadors to Kerman province, in southeastern Iran.

Gladkova said that about 10% of the population of students in Kerman province is made up of Afghan refugees, adding that the refugees even outnumber Iranian students at many schools of the province.

Thanks to the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, all Afghan children enjoy the opportunity to have access to educational facilities equal to what Iranian students receive, she added.

The UNHCR appreciated the Islamic Republic for services provided to refugees, .

She also considered her presence in Kerman as a good opportunity to witness the projects carried out for the refugees as well as the challenges they face, adding that the UNHCR is well aware of the great efforts made by the Iranian government to serve a large population of refugees residing in Kerman.

For us at the international level, Iran’s strategy of integrating services for a large refugee population into its national programs is of great importance, she underlined.
