A Special Giving Opportunity.....

Thank you for your support. Your desire to make a difference in this world has made a difference, and we are so thankful that Afghan people have had their lives changed with your help.

We wanted to share with you a very special opportunity to give more than 100% from November 10 through December 1st. Please share this with those you know who care. During this time, we are privileged to receive additional matching funds from your donation through Global Giving of at least 30%. The need is still great. Afghanistan struggles to become a country of strength and stability.

In the month of September, the Afghan Institute of Learning delivered 29 healthy babies. This may seem like a few but just a few years ago, no one delivered their babies in the clinic. Now the community trusts AIL and the women know that they will have a safer delivery in the clinic than at home. So, they come to the clinics for deliveries if it is possible. Unfortunately, because of security concerns, the clinic cannot stay open in the night so that more women could have their deliveries in the clinic. Participants at a recent Reproductive Health class learned about pre and post-natal care. Many women did not know why pregnant women felt pain during pregnancy. They had many pregnancy-related situations they had experienced, and now understand what is happening. Students also learned about infant health. Many infant children have died because of diarrhea and now these women know ways to help their children. This was the first workshop of this type for them- they were happy to learn about many important matters, and that they could freely share their problems and their personal experience. An AIL midwife at one of the clinics described how she assisted in a delivery: “A patient came from Robat Torkan at 8:30am for delivery. She was afraid because she had had vaginal bleeding in previous deliveries. We encouraged her and told her not to worry. After an exam we gave her Amp Oxytocine, and serum ringer 1000cc and at 10 o'clock she gave birth. The baby weighed 4 kg and was normal. After delivering the mother had bleeding. The doctor ordered the necessary medicines to stop the bleeding. By 2pm, the patient was normal and we gave her advice and education. She thanked us for our services and was so happy. She then left the clinic with her new baby.”

In the month of September, AIL taught 2,881 males. The opportunity for an education is a crucial alternative for Afghan boys. Without the opportunity to better themselves, these boys have a much higher chance to drift into the murky world of militant fighting and extremist propaganda. Providing basic literacy, advanced education in math, science, English and computer training gives Afghan boys and men the basics needed to develop strong jobs and be an asset to the Afghan society.

Here is a story that shares the impact of your donation in the life of a Afghan female refugee in Pakistan: “My name is Noor I used to live in the Logar province in Afghanistan. There are 12 people in my family- myself, my parents, and 9 brothers and sisters. I am taking literacy and sewing classes in the women’s learning center. I want to learn because without knowledge, a person is blind and for living in society, knowledge is very important in our life. I was amazed the first time I could read the newspaper; it is an unforgettable memory for me. I learned sewing to support my family and help with my old father and my elder brothers. It’s very necessary for me. My wish is that one day I will be able to own a sewing shop.”
