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.

Computing - as popular as ever!

As elsewhere in the world, computing skills are highly desirable to employers. Students are aware of this fact and are also fascinated by computers. The boys computing class in one village in Kabul Province is always full. This class was set up as an offshoot from the Learning Center (LC) established in the village by AIL in 2002 and also the medical clinic. The LC provided literacy, math, English and sewing skills training as well as advanced classes for boys who needed remedial work for school. The center then decided to set up a computer class as this was frequently requested. The class teaches Word, Excel and Windows.

Many of AIL’s centers offer computing classes and in September, in Herat Province there were 512 students (346 female) studying computing at LCs. There is also a special English and Computing 6 month course offered at a few centers. In Kabul this combined class has 308 students at 2 sites. The latter course is especially popular as it combines two highly regarded skills and makes navigating the internet that much easier.

Thanks for your support. We have included Creating Hope International’s newsletter which contains information on AIL’s work. We hope you will take a few minutes

Sewing Machines will be Purchased in January!

Dear Friends, 

Thank you so much for your support of the Afghan Institute of Learning's efforts to purchase sewing machines for our sewing classes. AIL's classes use machines that the staff are able to repair as necessary to extend the life of the machines. Unfortunately, a number of these machines have come to the end of their useful life, but thanks to you we will be able to replace them with new sewing machines! 

The staff in Afghanistan has decided that they are going to wait until January to purchase the machines, once we've had the funds for a few more machines. As soon as the machines have been purchased, we will let you know! In the meantime, we have attached our year-end newsletter to this report. We hope that you will take the time to read through it. Thank you!
