Final Update about Zahra

Scholarship Recipients
Scholarship Recipients

Thank you again for your donation, which has allowed Zahra the chance to attend school. The scholarships have now been awarded. Zahra is 12 years old and is attending a private school in Herat Province. Her father is unemployed and without this scholarship there would be no way for her family to afford to send her to school.

The person who awarded the scholarships to the girls reports, “The students who were given the scholarships come from poor families. Many of them have lost their parents and they need to work part time to help support their families. When they received the scholarship, they were so happy that their eyes got wet with tears. It was incredible for them.” 

One of the girls who received a scholarship said, “ I am so thankful for this scholarship. This opportunity will change my life. I am going to help my family and my community.” 

Thank you again for your generous donation; your donation has helped to change the course of this girl’s life forever.

Thank you for your support!

Thank you so much for your generous donations to help Creating Hope International fund a scholarship for Zahra. The private school is currently out of session for the winter and will begin again in late March or early April. In late February the Afghan Institute of Learning will be contacting Zahra to let her know about the scholarship. After we award her the scholarship, we will send you a report with more detailed information about Zahra and what an education means to her. Creating Hope International would like to thank you so much for your generosity and for helping make Zahra’s future brighter.

Happy Holidays from CHI and AIL

The Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) and Creating Hope International (CHI) would like to wish you and yours the happiest of holiday seasons.  As you celebrate with those you love, please take a moment to look at CHI’s yearly newsletter, which we’ve attached to this report. As you will see, 2012 has been a transformative year for AIL and CHI. After years of working tirelessly to provide education, training and healthcare to Afghans, we are beginning to see a real change. The minds of those AIL works with are being opened to the possibility of a peaceful Afghan society. 

AIL is in the process of finalizing a 5 year funding plan, which will be put into place beginning in 2013. We are looking forward to sharing the details of this plan with you soon, and hope that you will find it in your heart to give generously to help us reach our goal. The people of Afghanistan are making great strides, but our work is not done yet. Instead of backing down, we need to push ahead and continue to give Afghans the tools they need to create a more peaceful country. We are hoping that we can count on you to help continue our work. 

The women are beginning to see that through education they can have a better life, and are insisting on educating their children. They are taking charge of their health, and we are seeing more and more women requesting workshops on pre-natal issues as well as reproductive health. AIL is encouraged to see so many Afghan women looking forward to a brighter future and is planning to be there to help the women lead the way to the Afghanistan of their dreams.
