Learning Centers for Rural Afghan Women in Herat

Jul 7, 2011

Learning Centers are reaching so many women

In May of this year, 3,359 females were studying in the eleven AIL Herat rural learning centers that were operating that month.  Academic subjects included Literature, English, Physics, Math, Science and other language courses.  Specialty skill classes were also held, including sewing, carpet weaving, a beautician’s course, embroidery and painting.

One young woman attending a center in Jabreel had this to say:  “I am 15 years old and I like to learn English because this is an international language.  I try to learn this vital language.  I should mention there is one best learning place and that is Jabreel center. I learned English from this center thanks to AIL staff.“
