AIL supports rural centers and centers for rural Afghan Women in Herat Province, Afghanistan.
No education has been available to women and girls in the western province of Herat, Afghanistan, for the last decade under the Taliban regime. Project partner AIL began offering Women's Learning Centers to women and girls in rural Herat during 2003. These education services include literacy and skills training classes. This project will ensure continuation of these urgently needed, accessible, culturally sensitive services.
Literacy, English, and income-generating skills classes are offered at the Women's Learning Centers in Herat, Afghanistan to over 7,000 students a year.
A full array of educational services are offered to hard-to-reach rural women and girls through Women's Learning Center sites in Herat, Afghanistan. These centers improve the education of Afghan women in the region.
When we see the happy faces of these rural people, we feel great hope for the future of this country. People are eager to learn and learn. Many women use the center and the community supports AIL. - Coordinator, Afghan Institute of Learning
