                          <longTermImpact>A full array of medical and educational services are offered to hard-to-reach rural women and girls through Women's Learning Center sites at Jaghartun and Sar Asia. These centers improve the education and health of Afghan women in the region.</longTermImpact>
                          <need>No education has been available to women and girls in the western province of Herat, Afghanistan, for the last decade under the Taliban regime. Project partner AIL began offering Women's Learning Centers to women and girls in rural Herat during 2003. These health and education services at Sar Asia and Jaghartun include a maternal/child health clinic, literacy and skills training classes. This project will ensure continuation of these urgently needed, accessible, culturally sensitive services.</need>
