1:06 am
that went through the so-called arab spring and its negative implications of god willing the sudanese people are very alert and will not fall into any one's trying to destabilize sudan. well it's a share second trip abroad since the demonstrations erupted on the six weeks ago over rising prices and bread shortages but the demands for economic reform and political change have grow ever since ahmed fahour reports now from khartoum. freedom peace justice and the overthrow of president omar bashir are the main slogans being chanted by these sudanese protesters but at the root of the demonstrations are demands for basic life necessities but old stations ran out of fuel inflation rates soared bank coffers were empty people stopped deposing money with banks and those who did face limits on how much cash they could withdraw most dangerously bakeries ran out of floor of all the other needs bread can be seen as
1:07 am
the main symbol of the crisis a burst the demand was a journalist during the one nine hundred seventy s. at the time of former president maybe his life now may symbolize the slow descent of sudan from relative ease to utter this to tuition. everything was much better they mary was a strong leader we had a great culture to certainly span was equal to four dollars but now it's crisis everywhere and people have nothing to eat who don't want to know. the origin of that crisis the sudanese government agrees was a shift the country made from agriculture to oil during the one nine hundred ninety s. the hustle and i mean some of the model who indeed it's called the dutch disease when easy only revenue arms shift attention away from traditional resources such as farming we've had it in sudan but now we are addressing the problem through new strategies and more focus on agriculture. in two thousand and ten sudan exported
1:08 am
nearly half a million barrels of oil a day but a year later south sudan deigned independence and took most of the oil fields with it by then there are great cultural sector was already suffering from neglect and there was another shift happening. in the past sudanese households relied mainly on sorghum for food and those things change when the british and i in our governments approach wheat preparing sorghum is towards cement takes time they have to take it to the mills to grind it then you need a long process to cook it with bread on the other hand is handy all you need is to go and buy it ready from the bakery. marlin is only a month. wheat bread now accounts for two thirds of regular meals in sudan. just to give you an idea about how much bread an average family of five individuals in sudan need for the daily meals each individual that i'm here needs six pieces of
1:09 am
bread if i try to put all the quantity they need in my hands. it's not possible this is just the shell of two people. the crisis got worse when sudan couldn't grow or buy enough wheat saudia an erotic companies grow millions of tons of wheat here on least or purchased land what they send it out of the country now sudan with its over two million hectares of fertile soil but even oil and the gigantic underground lake the newbie in basin is begging for outside help to satisfy its demand of wheat to feed the hungry population of nearly forty million. voters to say it's too late to calm these cards bread will overthrow this regime it happened before here in sudan i assume so these words is a code by these protesters david chump's. mohammed via. russia

end to the violence threats and verbal abuse which they say characterizes the recent protests. headlines you are up to date we'll have more news in just under half an hour states in though for one a one east seize it. in war torn afghanistan or simply going to school can be a privilege. especially if you're
1:22 am
a girl. in the rain amounts. to three girls don't attend school despite billions of dollars in aid spent on education over the last two decades. i'm steve on this episode of what i want to use to reinvestigate why so many of afghanistan's girls are kept outside of the classroom. into the dawn of a new school day across afghanistan and girls from the dashed district or neighborhood in west kabul begin making their way to class. perced a trickle. and soon a steady stream out. by six am the outpouring from the gates. there steve from norwich ready to learn.
1:23 am
it's six am seems early for school and it is and. that's because this is the first of three shifts here. it's the only way to accommodate the more than fourteen thousand students from the school wolf split almost evenly between schools and. over the next week we've been given extremely rare access inside the cia the shahadah school to try to understand what life is like for a girl for him to school in afghanistan. in skull the communists are hard for us and in our town tree we have lots of problems back in the school will we have more problems. sixteen year old man. has been a student at seattle shahada since grade one over that time she in principle a key latasha coolie have seen the numbers of girls at your school more than ok
1:24 am
melissa yes and so are strolls and though we have. a few buildings here and there. was a student here they get this seven thousand just as just here so i wonder how long . the huge increase in the numbers of fuel studying it. is a welcome sign of progress compared to the days when the taliban were in power and girls were forbidden from going to school. but the schools enormous growth has a major consequence to many students and not enough classrooms so we have a few buildings here yeah which ones are for girls one is to focus on the timing of movement is saying that that building is from the beis building room for the from the five buildings and from the by the we are seeing the buildings are all loved by
1:25 am
all the building all of the boys are the mice yes. where are the girls that's the eyes of the yes. we don't have a classroom because we don't have buildings and that's just for our parents and all of the buildings are going to buy if we don't have any room. how many classes into tiles we have more then for. what it costs us for the classroom times a day she time with a. really good is ok just go hard to be on the bus to lug with you on that. now you're. getting. there is only one high school in this neighborhood which is why the girls come from
1:26 am
far away from all the population is growing and day by day the girls come knocking on our door to be enrolled and we cannot tell them no joint. and we have to accept them but we don't have enough space that's why we have problems. the. lack of infrastructure is only one of many reasons why so many afghan girls are out of school. in fact no one actually knows how many girls are in school not even the afghan government the ministry of education is not sure how many students are there is it eleven million or is it seven point two million is it eight million nobody knows exactly how many students are there. for bulk of that overtop that's just one of several findings of a recent independent review on corruption within the ministry of education released
1:27 am
late last year the results made headlines across the country it found widespread corruption throughout the education system ministry. of bashar is the former director of afghanistan's anti corruption watchdog and author of the report after spending billions and billions of dollars in the last sixteen years. we have not been able actually to have any kind of building for most of the schools our finding shows that. the treaty money was taken in cash to remote parts of afghanistan by the trustees and we had information that the money did not make the right people. had siad all shahada there aren't even enough classrooms for the boys. many classes are held in the hallways or in stairwells wherever
1:28 am
a teacher can i don't speak. the only place you won't find boys attending classes is in a tent or out in the open with the girls in the past lou nowhere together by saying girls we didn't first through lack of that classes ok we had enough classes here but right now we have too much people we have too much a student here because of this there is no play is. recognising the desperate need at the school japanese donors built to need buildings five years ago so girls would have their own classrooms. at the school shura community leaders decided to give those buildings to the people. in this school is a blank stare as to girls because when a freelancer coming we were under the sun we were under the radar and therefore in ours next one did the school's frazz but right now is this by says i don't know why
1:29 am
you feel angry about this through angry yes because in the past. where when they are coming so they will think about us as about about the gears ok but right now it's the my school i don't know why and it's right makes me really angry that's why i always the right of the girls are like. improving education especially for girls is a well known objective for international donors principle a key lesson as the local community gave the buildings to the boys thinking that donors would come back to build more classrooms for the girls. the honey. what if. people think n.g.o.s come here to work only for girls so the community decided the bolling's should be for the boys. i don't know if the school's management or others interfere in these issues are always decided by the males in
1:30 am
the school management. did the donors ever come back after they built the building. they came once to visit then went back to the ruffle. the security situation continues to deteriorate in afghanistan as a result there we feel international donors are able to visit the projects they support so many rely on third party monitors to do that work which according to the anti corruption committee opens yet another avenue for corruption we've found that the school monitors and instead of doing proper monitoring off the quality of education. they have been working for themselves you know to go to some of the school to kind of harass the teachers in this great inspiration get money from them and then to their evaluation once they were happy we had an example. our school
1:31 am
that we're working with them but actually on which has a thousand kids on the register actually when we went in there there were twelve kids coming to school. in kaplan is a researcher who contributed to the anticorruption report as an education specialist he works with the norwegian and geo providing support for schools throughout afghanistan including this school for the deaf and car. sign language which. kaplan says he's fortunate to be able to visit the projects and g.m. supports it's often kind of difficult for donors to be able to do that because of security concerns but also sometimes it's not always the interest to go out and follow up on these things and to go out and visit so it doesn't happen very often i think i mean you get a feeling for something in a way that you don't if you're sitting behind a desk and you see people and you see them engaging in learning and i mean for me that's the reason to be here but without that i would just lose the feeling for it
1:32 am
i think altogether but he says lack of donor access and oversight is only one of the issues affecting girls education in afghanistan while girls of lacking so much more than boys when it comes to education well i think you know at least in the past there have been just much more focus on just getting anyone in the school first and then it was easier to get boys into school and. you know and also just because of gender you know that the more attention has been focused on boys than girls generally see india is a country that's leaving all this like saying that they are not that there's not that there's all this saying that this. is the top. levels of the afghan government and the international community deal with the findings of the anti corruption report the staff and the girls that say it will shahada face more immediate issues. the first shift of the school day from six am to ten am
1:33 am
is almost over and while four hours might seem a little light on school times it may be a blessing in disguise because any longer on the girls may happen is to play with. the trash talk a new car bomb we have seven thousand go but both male and female students have to use the same time and such. we tell them during the summer league do it before coming to school. have you ever gone to the toilet in your school yes i was seven years old or when to call and. it's a will but situation here. the biggest car would you. go to the bar.
1:34 am
room with this. poor working conditions in most schools make it more difficult to attract female teachers yet there.
