Changing a Life with Scholarship Funds

AIL's project 1155 Fast Track Education for Afghan Women and Girls has a chance to win a place in the GlobalGiving Girl Fund!

Donate to project 1155 today and help us get into the fund which provides monthly funds for a whole year! The more people who donate the better our chances! 

This project provides funds for poor Afghan girls to attend school or high school and young women to attend university. Getting a quality education opens doors for children to better lives through opportunity, employability and greater capacity with mental skills such as reasoning, critical thinking and problem solving.

Here is the story of one girl attending a high School: Kavoos is a 15 year old girl who is very interested in learning. She wants to become a teacher. She lives in a village near the school and has been there for 3 years. Her father is a farmer and works on land by the village. He gets some income which provides for the basic needs of this family. Kavoos’ mother also does chores at the master's house. She cleans, cooks and takes care of their stocks. Unfortunately, their combined income does not cover the cost of school fees and they removed Kavoos from school. She was sad about this. She told her teachers and asked for their help to get her back to school. She was delighted to be given a scholarship. Kavoos said, “School is a hope and an opportunity for me and my family. Thank you to my teachers and Professor Yacoobi for giving opportunity to poor children in this country. I can continue my education and become someone in the future.”

Thank you for your support.

Bon Center Students Enjoy Life

There are 106 boys and 60 girls at the Bon Center, numbers do fluctuate during the year. The students enjoy a variety of taught subjects and activities as well as sports. One class activity they are encouraged to do is to be thoughtful and reflective of their experiences.

Here are the comments of one student, “I always try to be content and remember we have been given enough for our needs and not to be greedy. Good habits help stop negativity. We learn many things at the center as well as how to be a good person and to help others. I am trying my best.”

Thanks for your support.
