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.

August 2009 Update

Recently, AIL was asked by the Afghan Ministry of Women’s Affairs to report on the impact AIL’s programs have had. We were amazed by our findings. Since beginning in 1996 through May 2009, 220,970 Afghans have been educated in AIL schools, centers and post-secondary programs and overall 6,778,026 Afghan lives have been directly impacted by AIL programs.

Although most of the students in AIL centers and schools are women and girls, AIL is also educating boys who have not had an opportunity to go to school during the war years. During the first 6 months of 2009, your donations helped AIL educate 4,177 Afghan boys in Educational Learning Centers in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

AIL began supporting schools and educational learning centers in Pakistan in 1996. With the fall of the Taliban more than 5 million Afghans returned home and many schools closed. However, approximately 2 million Afghans had no homes or jobs to return to and remain in Pakistan. AIL supports 3 schools and 3 Women’s Learning Centers in Pakistan presently. During the first 6 months of 2009, your donations helped AIL educate 2,161 Afghan refugees in schools and Women’s Learning Centers in Pakistan.

AIL has been a leader in providing pre school education and training pre school teachers. Many Afghan schools and ministries are now starting their own pre schools and requesting training from AIL for their teachers. AIL continues to support model pre schools. During the first 6 months of 2009, your donations helped AIL educate 974 students in Preschool programs across Afghanistan and Pakistan. For most of 2008, AIL had 3 preschool programs. AIL was able to start 3 more programs so far during 2009. These three new programs are serving a total of 510 preschool students!
