Jump-Start Learning for Afghan Children

In 2007, the Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) has supported five pre-schools. AIL has a model pre-school in Peshawar, Pakistan for Afghan refugees and another model pre-school in Kabul, Afghanistan. For parents that can afford it, fees are charged in the model pre-schools. Poor students receive scholarships. AIL also supports pre-schools in one Women’s Learning Center in Kabul and two rural Women’s Learning Centers in Herat. 317 girls and boys attended the five pre-schools during the first six months of 2007.

Parents of the pre-schoolers are very happy with AIL’s program and report that when their children enter school, they perform far better than other children.

Between January and August 2007, the Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) has held classes for 918 Afghan children in preschools Herat and Kabul, Afghanistan and Peshawar, Pakistan.

Creating Hope International shares this mid-year report from the Afghan Institute of Learning, highlighting some of AIL's recent successes!
