About the Project

Maktab, an award-winning e-Learning platform funded in 2018 by a family funding and collaboration in Afghanistan is an online e-learning and collaboration platform in Afghanistan. The initial aim was to help every youth especially girls in Afghanistan and Afghans outside the country to have access to the quality education and resources, and be able to collaborate with their peers by taking real-time quizzes and or different assessments designed for each course and subject. The platform has an awareness module and a sociale interaction functionality that users could share knowledge and be connected with each other and try to promote education importance with a focus on conservative families.

Maktab is a free e-Learning & collaboration platform that helps students in Afghanistan, to learn and have access to quality educational resources from anywhere using a smartphone phone or tablet. It's available for both iOS and Android platforms and we have built it within 2 and a half years of hard work. Maktab has been built by a group of volunteers with the support of Microcis ICT Services Co. LTD. Nine out of 12 of our team members are female who joined as interns, but now they are among the top software developers and content creators and experts in the industry, making money and feeding their families. Unfortunately a few weeks ago one of our lead software engineers who is my brother has been killed for his services, we have received many threats to close and shutdown this initiative, but we didn't and we have started a work for a better Afghanistan and we all believed that without education, it's impossible to build a country and bring peace.

Maktab has nearly 30k users and is growing. 67% of our users are girls and we have lots of interesting success stories to share. We started Maktab with three goals in Afghanistan: 1). to help students have access to quality education and video lectures. 2). help girls belonging to conservative families to have access to education opportunities, as well as enable them to learn and collaborate with others from their homes using their smartphone devices. 3). provide different types of awareness for the students and their families, improving their knowledge about surfing safely online and avoiding different risks associated with the online environment. ‌
