In early 2011, the AIL Peshawar office was able to distribute blankets and floor coverings to over 250 families who were flood victims in the very poor village of Charsada. During the distribution there was a very calm and friendly environment. The people were very glad and thankful to AIL for helping them when they needed help.
On October 27, 2010, the Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) Peshawar staff delivered blankets and floor coverings to 250 families living in the Sawari gari Dawood in Nowshara, Pakistan. Each family received one blanket and one floor covering. Local authorities cooperated with AIL with the distribution of the blankets and floor coverings. If a family was unable to come and get their own supplies because they were working, then other families picked up blankets and floor coverings for them so that every family was able to get what they needed.
Five Reasons to Celebrate
The year 2010 has been one of many challenges for people throughout the world. In Afghanistan, insecurity, violence, and poverty continue to threaten communities. But the people of Afghanistan are strong and hopeful, and they are working hard to overcome these challenges. At the Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL), we see it every day. You can help Afghans, particularly women and children, to create a better future for themselves and their families with a contribution to AIL through Global Giving.
Looking back upon the year, what we focus on are our reasons to celebrate.
In fact, you make all of the other reasons to celebrate possible. Here is the rest of AIL’s top five reasons to celebrate in 2010:
Your renewed support will help AIL and the Afghan people start 2011 with renewed hope. If you have not yet renewed your support for AIL, please donate today and tell a friend. Thank you and best wishes.
Grateful and Undaunted
At this time of year, we are reminded of our many blessings and how the people in our lives enrich us and bring joy to every day. All of us at the Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) are especially grateful to you, for your generous support of our efforts to help the people of Afghanistan overcome many challenges: women are emerging from the darkness of illiteracy to a bright and hopeful future; rural Afghan villages are being empowered to provide education and health care for their children – boys and girls; young men and boys who were part of the violence are finding a reason to believe in peace. All of this and much more is possible because of your contribution. Thank you!
As you celebrate this Holiday Season and anticipate the approach of the New Year, we hope that you will think of us again and make another donation to help ensure AIL is able to continue our work. You have most likely heard that Afghanistan continues to suffer terrible insecurity and poverty. But AIL is undaunted by the headlines because we know that the people of Afghanistan are working hard every day to improve their lives and the future of their country. Together with the people of Afghanistan, we are confident because we know that people like you believe in us and stand by us.
When you make your donation, check out the Tribute Card and Gift Card options – and please tell a friend about AIL and encourage them to make a donation too.
No matter what our circumstances today, when we believe in each other and work together, we can be assured that tomorrow will be better. Seasons Greetings and thank you again.
AIL Executive Director
AIL is presently focusing on providing assistance to flood survivors who are receiving little or nothing from outside sources. The first delivery made by AIL was of food and utensils to Afghan refugee families near Peshawar who had lost everything. AIL planned to deliver more needed items to the families but the authorities decided to move the families to another camp. Since then, AIL has identified a small area where there are 250 families, Afghan refugees and Pakistani nationals, who need floor coverings and blankets for the coming winter. Delivery was made last week and will be reported on in a few weeks.
