Dear Friends, 
Thank you so much for all of your support of the Afghan Institute of Learning! We value your support and are grateful to you for taking an interest in those less fortunate in a far off land. You are helping to improve the lives of thousands of Afghans each year through our health, education and training programs. We are writing today to share our annual report with you, highlighting the many achievements of AIL and the impact on the lives of beneficiaries that you have supported. We hope that you will take a few minutes to view the report by clicking the link below and learn about the many ways you helped Afghans through AIL's innovative programming.

There are many poor Afghans who have a hard time making ends meet at the best of times, many of these have young children with them.  When there is extreme weather or other natural disaster such as earthquake or flooding, AIL is able to help out by providing food aid such as oil, peas, legumes and rice. AIL continues to keep supplies and some money on hand for extraordinary disasters, in addition to harsh weather food aid.

AIL staff work with local community leaders to identify the families most in need of food aid.

Thank you for your support for needy Afghans.

Your donations help AIL to provide food and other kinds of aid to needy Afghans. In the winter of 2014-15, you helped AIL to provide food for 200 needy families. As the international military missions wind down in Afghanistan, areas that were secure until recently are coming unsafe and AIL anticipates there being greater need this summer and in to the fall. Your donations will help AIL to purchase food to help these Afghans. 

Please help by donating  to our project today, May 13th. Thank you.

The Afghan winter is harsh and poor people are vulnerable in bad weather. AIL keeps supplies and money available to provide for emergencies. In November, 200 people received food from AIL. Basic food supplies include oil, peas, legumes and rice. This support is hugely important to these people who struggle to provide for their families even when the weather is good. Winter creates added stress and difficulties, but the donations of food from AIL are helping to see people through. AIL continues to keep some supplies and money on hand in the event of extraordinary disasters, in addition to harsh weather food aid.

Thank you for your support for Afghans.  

As winter approaches, AIL is making sure it is well supplied with food and other items in case of disaster. Sometimes the poor just cannot get by in the harsh weather and then AIL is able to make distributions of basic food stuffs such as oil, rice and beans. AIL needs funds to restock its shelves with emergency rations. The staff hope each year that they will have enough to help everyone who needs it. Weather is not the only emergency that might happen in the next 4 months of cold weather and AIL will be ready to offer help whatever the crisis.

Your support would be greatly appreciated. More information on AIL’s work is included in Creating Hope International’s newsletter.
