English classes are changing lives

All of us at the Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) and Creating Hope International (CHI) want to thank you for your support this year and wish you and your families a very happy holiday season! It is your support that has helped AIL educate so many boys this year—boys like Ahmad who just signed up for an English class and wrote:

 "I was not sure if I could learn English before coming to this center, but the teacher used new methods of teaching that interested me and encouraged all students believe in their abilities. I work part time in a magazine, checking emails and translating English stories to Dari. I am going to study English until I get an AB degree. These English classes have changed my life.”

Now there is an amazing opportunity to help educate even more boys like Ahmad. Today, beginning at noon EST (9am PST), all donations to this project will be matched by Microsoft as part of #GivingTuesday! There are $250,000 in matching funds available, and matching will only last while the funds do, so if you plan to give, please do so early in the day! This is a wonderful chance to double your donation, so please help us take advantage of this opportunity.

We thank you so much for your support! Please take some time to check out our annual newsletter attached to this report.
