Afghanistan’s Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs, Martyrs and Disabled (MoLSAMD) and Moraa Educational Complex (MEC), Afghanistan’s first ever female university, signed an agreement that the institution would provide learning opportunities to orphan girls from 70 orphanages from across the country. 
Acting minister of labor, social affairs, martyrs and disabled, Faizullah Zaki, said on Wednesday at the signing ceremony that female students from at least 70 orphanages across the country will be able to pursue their higher education at the university. 
He said that in the first phase 19 students from these orphanages will be enrolled in Moraa.
“Moraa university is one of the best places for higher education, in the first stage we are trying to enroll 19 girls who are willing to pursue their higher education,” said Zaki.
Meanwhile, Moraa officials have said that the university will consider special learning opportunities for female students from orphanages. 
“We are trying to pave the way for girls from the orphanages, all necessary arrangements have been made in this respect,” said Azizullah Amir, a Moraa university official. 
According to Zaki, currently there are around 70 orphanages in the country where hundreds of homeless children are housed.
