Excitement About the Program Builds

Thank you for your support of AIL’s project. While the situation in Afghanistan continues to prove challenging, with your help AIL is finding ways to continue bringing high quality education to the young women of Afghanistan.

Word about the success of AIL’s mobile literacy program has been spreading across Afghanistan and around the world. AIL is receiving requests from students to hold more classes like the two in the pilot program, and Dr. Sakena Yacoobi has been asked to present information about the project at an international conference. We cannot wait to have the funding to get this project off the ground and begin helping more young women become literate using this innovative method!

Don’t forget!  The holidays are a great time to share your passion for AIL and the great work that they do! GlobalGiving offers gift certificates which can be used to donate to AIL’s projects. Also, beginning December 1st, the initial donation made by recurring donors will be matched 100% by GlobalGiving. There is only $25,000 available in matching funds, so help AIL take advantage of this opportunity early!
