Educating Boys for a Brighter Future

On behalf of Creating Hope International (CHI) and the Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL), we would like to thank you all for your generous support for the ‘Help Afghan Boys Trade Guns for Books’ project.   Although our learning centers focus primarily on educating women and girls, we never turn away students who seek education to better their lives. There are a significant number of Afghan boys who also need education. Although males have a  higher literacy rate than Afghan females, the rate is still well below 50% nationwide. By helping Afghan boys obtain an education, we hope to pave the way to a brighter future for all Afghans.

In January of this year, we helped to educate  3,651  boys  in 33 learning centers, 5 pre-schools and 3 schools in Pakistan. Our boys are taking courses in a variety of topics, such as literacy, English, Arabic, mathematics, and computer technology. Boys are getting an education to better the quality of life for themselves and their families, and they are receiving training they could never have acquired otherwise. They are getting careers as interpreters, administrators, and computer technicians. They are denouncing violence and are promoting human rights and education. Our organization continues to grow, helping a growing number of students, both male and female. We thank you all very much for your unwavering support!
