Afghan Institute of Learning

The Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) works to empower all Afghans who are needy, especially women and children, providing them the knowledge and skills to care for themselves. AIL is expanding access to quality education and healthcare through community based programming, enabling communities to develop the capacity of their people. The goal is to create a foundation of quality education and health systems throughout Afghanistan which meet the needs of local people now and in the future. AIL was founded by an Afghan woman and is run by women, reaching thousands each year through health facilities, educational centers and training programs.
Provide 2 Sewing Machines for Afghan Women
Sewing classes are very popular as they give women a skill they can use to earn money as well as do their own family sewing. AIL Staff maintain and repair the machines as needed. Unfortunately,some of these machines have broken beyond repair. While the women in class usually share the sewing machines, there are now more women using each machine. Providing a Learning Center with a new sewing machine will solve this problem.
Afghan Institute of Learning Empowers Afghan Women
AIL has been empowering Afghans since 1995 by expanding their educational and health opportunities through fostering self-reliance and community participation. AIL provides education from preschool through post secondary levels helping girls and women learn. An educated and health aware woman is more likely to succeed personally, and to be able to contribute positively economically and in family care leading to self supporting family units. project reportread updates from the field

Books for Afghan Women and Children
More than 7 million Afghans have no access to reading books in school and are learning to read from textbooks only. The Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) purchases and publishes books for libraries for the 25,000 students in AIL Learning Centers and the schools that it supports and supplies books to a public library in Herat. Students who have a variety of reading material are more able to apply what they have learned and to expand their minds through reading diverse subject matter. project reportread updates from the field
