Carpet Weaving Part of Larger Effort

Thank you for your support of AIL’s project. While the situation in Afghanistan continues to prove challenging, with your help AIL is finding ways to continue bringing high quality education to the women of Afghanistan. 

The teachers and students in AIL’s carpet weaving program have been hard at work. Recently a professional designer came to the center and designed several new carpets for the students to weave. The students are excited to be working on new patterns, and to be taking part in the traditional Afghan art of carpet weaving. 

The carpet weaving courses are being taught along side other traditional Afghan arts such as miniature painting, calligraphy, silk weaving and more. The center where these classes are being taught has become a center of cultural significance for the community, helping to keep alive many traditional Afghan arts. 

Don’t forget!  The holidays are a great time to share your passion for AIL and the great work that they do! GlobalGiving offers gift certificates which can be used to donate to AIL’s projects. Also, beginning December 1st, the initial donation made by recurring donors will be matched 100% by GlobalGiving. There is only $25,000 available in matching funds, so help AIL take advantage of this opportunity early!
