Events in Afghanistan and their implications on Women and Children in Central Africa

This paper examines The Taliban arrival to power in Kabul, on Sunday August 15th, 2021, two weeks before the United States of America (USA) was set to complete its troops withdrawal, forcing President Ashraf Ghani to flee from the Arg, the presidential palace. Could this have implications on the wellbeing of children and women in the central African sub-region, given the current upsurge of Islamic fundamentalism influenced by Taliban Doctrine? Have we lessons to learn from the Taliban effects on women in Pakistan?
