Give Afghan Refugees the Gift of Education

Life is Brighter

Aleya, a student at the Zarghoona Ana Center in Pakistan, is a refugee from Afghanistan and unable to attend school before she came to Zarghoona Ana Center.  She is studying literacy at this Center.  She says, “I am now in the 9th class and all of this is because of the AIL office.  Before, I was very sad and I felt something missing in my heart and my life was dark.  But, now, my eyes are bright and I can understand everything.  Also, I now solve my problems and enjoy every step of my life.”
