Answer to Question #77702 in Other History for Jen
What activities outside of school would children in Afghanistan participate in?
Children in Afghanistan are entitled to take part in different cultural activities. Also, they have the right to freedom of association, which enables them to share their points of view. Concerning the fact, that around 20% of Afghanistan children are expected to work to provide for themselves and their family members. Most of them engage in hazardous employment to meet their expenses, leading finally to being dropped out of educational establishments. Unfortunately, children often participate just in such activities like street vending, water carrying, cardboard collecting, shoe polishing, taxi soliciting, domestic serving, assisting in boutiques, and lots of other jobs done by Afghan children.
