Summer Update 2010

The Afghan Institute of Learning offers computer and IT classes in several of their educational learning centers, in their sponsored private high schools and in the Gawhar Shad University. 206 students completed either a university or in-depth IT training course in the first 6 months of 2010. A participant of an IT workshop offered this year shared his reason for attending: “I am a government employee of MOWA. I attended this workshop because I did not know how to use the computer. When I heard that AIL is going to give an IT workshop for MOWA staff, I requested my boss to add my name in the list of attendees. Fortunately, she did and now I’ve learned how to use the computer. I am able to type a letter and make a table in the Excel program which can help me in my office work.”
