15 July 2014, Mashhad, Iran The first cohort of Afghan children—35 girls and boys aged 10-12—who have studied in one of non-governmental learning centers in Mashhad, celebrated their graduation from primary school on 26 May 2014. These children who had missed out on formal public education, have undergone schooling as part of a project by the Bureau of Aliens and Foreign Immigrants Affairs (BAFIA) of the Ministry of Interior and supported by the UNICEF Iran Office and implemented by HAMI, an Iranian NGO providing services to refugee children and women. The project partners have entered collaboration to ensure  the right to education of all children and women, especially those among the vulnerable Afghan populations, is fulfilled.
