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.

AIL's Sewing Class Needs Four New Sewing Machines
 
In August, the staff at one of AIL's centers let us know that they are in need of new sewing machines. The machines that are used in class are simple in design so that the staff, as necessary, can easily repair them. Unfortunately, four 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 making learning difficult. Providing the center with new sewing machines will solve this problem. project reportread updates from the field

Help Gulalai Use Texting to Become Literate
 
AIL has piloted a project using cell phones and texting in conjunction with it's literacy program to accelerate the learning of 60 illiterate young Afghan women. The students in the pilot classes were able to complete 3 levels of literacy classes in 5 months, a feat which normally takes 18 months. AIL is now looking to expand this successful program from 2 classes to 10 classes. The micro project will cover the costs for one girl to participate in these classes. project reportread updates from the field

Printing a Calligraphy Book for Afghan Students
 
Over the years of war and strife, many Afghans have forgotten how to write in the beautiful calligraphy that was once common. Additionally, many teachers no longer know how to teach the subject. One Afghan teacher recognized this problem and has written a workbook to help both teacher and students learn this beautiful form of writing. project reportread updates from the field
