Darakht-e danesh' means "knowledge tree" in Dari, one of the official languages of Afghanistan. The Darakht-e Danesh Online Library for Educators is a repository of open educational resources for teachers, teacher trainers, school administrators, literacy workers and others involved in furthering education in Afghanistan. These open source resources include lesson plans, pedagogical tools, exercises, experiments, reading texts, work books, curricula and other resources for use in Afghan classrooms.

In this session, an overview of Education system in Afghanistan and our work on OER will be explained. Additionally, we will share our methodologies in the ground, our successes and challenges. We also will share what we want to achieve next in Afghanistan on Open Education, Open Access and OER and how the community in OpenCon can help us achieve these goals.
