In September of 2011, two additional Learning Centers were opened in the Herat Province by the Afghan Institute of Learning. Both of these Centers were requested by the communities they serve. One started with 114 students, but enrollment there has already increased to 185. The other, located in a small rural village, began with 20 female students, and had increased to 27 by January.
In addition, in November 2011, the Afghan Institute of Learning was asked to help support yet another Learning Center in Herat. This Center currently hosts 50 students. As of January 2012, there were 14 Learning Centers operating in the Herat Province, and 70% of the nearly 5,000 students are women.
