The total number of teachers trained by the Afghan Institute of Learning in 2011 was 1,722. Imagine the number of students that these teachers are reaching! If each teacher has twenty students (Afghan classes tend to be larger) in their class – that means that 34,440 students are being taught by trained teachers in the first year alone! Each year that these trained teachers continue teaching, they reach more and more students and that number grows substantially. In addition, we know that those teachers share their knowledge and experience with their fellow teachers to help them better understand various teaching methods.
