Afghan Institute of Learning

The Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) works to empower all Afghans who are needy, especially women and children, providing them the knowledge and skills to care for themselves. AIL is expanding access to quality education and healthcare through community based programming, enabling communities to develop the capacity of their people. The goal is to create a foundation of quality education and health systems throughout Afghanistan which meet the needs of local people now and in the future. AIL was founded by an Afghan woman and is run by women, reaching thousands each year through health facilities, educational centers and training programs.

In August, the staff at one of AIL's centers let us know that they are in need of new sewing machines. The machines that are used in class are simple in design so that the staff, as necessary, can easily repair them. Unfortunately, four of these machines have broken beyond repair. While the women in class usually share the sewing machines, there are now more women using each machine making learning difficult. Providing the center with new sewing machines will solve this problem. project reportread updates from the field
