Female teachers walk by a sheet dividing the boys classrooms from the girls’ at a makeshift school near the Afghan/Pakistan border in Khost province. The school was set up by the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) inside a refugee camp for North Waziristani children after thousands of families fled their villages in the tribal west of Pakistan when the country’s military waged an offensive against Taliban insurgents there. The intervention followed a series of major attacks by the Taliban on Pakistani soil, including that on Karachi Airport in June which resulted in dozens of deaths and millions of dollars in damage. Gulan camp is home now to approximately 3,400 families. Andrew Quilty / Oculi for NRC.
