Summary

Afghan adolescent girls are key to the future of Afghanistan. To reach their potential, girls must be healthy, educated and trained to be leaders at home and in communities. The Afghan Institute of Learning's (AIL) fusion of education, health and training programming has been forming capable adolescent girls for 17 years. Each year, AIL aims to provide education, health services and training in human rights, leadership and health to at least 70,000 adolescent girls.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Afghanistan has had decades of strife with women and children, particularly girls, suffering the most and being left behind. They have lost their identities through the loss of loved ones, from war, preventable illness, or displacement. Adolescent girls lack education and health services. This situation has caused the erosion of family unity, loss of trust among people, any sense of community, and core human values.

How will this project solve this problem?

AIL's education and training encourage critical thinking and personal responsibility and are based on core values. Together with access to healthcare and health education, these culturally appropriate programs are bringing about change in the way young women and girls see themselves. As they become healthy, they can learn skills and gain literacy and numeracy and knowledge of their rights and leadership capabilities. This enables them to transform their lives and their communities.

Potential Long Term Impact

AIL's holistic approach works, as providing education and training to healthy adolescents is showing remarkable results. Young girls are starting innovative projects in their communities and are joining together in Emerging Leader Groups to discuss ideas and support projects for a better future. Based on an AIL student sampling, 95% of the participants in leadership workshops have demonstrated actions of leadership in their communities; something unheard of in the past.
