Tailoring: A Small-Business Skill for Afghan Women

Jul 7, 2011

Another successful story

A Story from one student at the Yacoobi Foundation Women’s Learning Center (WLC):

 Farishta, one of the students of Yacoobi Foundation WLC, relates the impact of AIL’s programs on her village and family:  “One year ago I was illiterate like other women of Afghanistan. I was in my house without any fun and studying and I didn’t have any job and was in a poor economic situation. I came to the AIL Yacoobi Foundation center and I learned to be a tailor.  Now I can sew my family’s clothes and the clothes of others in the village.   I earn 2000 Afghanis per month. Now I can buy things for my children. I know that AIL works very effectively.”
