Educational Opportunity for many Girls

We are providing education to a growing number of women and girls of all ages and backgrounds. In the first two months of the year, we brought education to over 9,236 girls in subjects such as literacy, English, Arabic, and computers. We have also provided these women and girls with opportunities to gain skills in sewing, tailoring, carpet and silk weaving, macramé, and painting.

All of these skills open doors to careers and other opportunities to make an income. In addition, our Fast-Track program has opened doors to women and girls by providing them with flexible schedules to learn the basics as fast or as slow as they are able to. We wish to thank you all for your generosity and compassion in making these hopeful changes possible!

One center reported recently, “One of our sewing graduates has become a sewing teacher at a learning center. She now has 25 students that she teaches every day. The students are happy to have her as their teacher and are learning many things each day.”

Health care helps Women

In the Herat area, AIL has 2 fixed health clinics, 4 clinics at Learning Centers, 2 at an orphanage and 1 at a street children facility. There are also two clinics in the Kabul area.

Here is a snapshot of one month’s activity of the health program:  In February, AIL treated 20,651 patients and provided health education to 13,962.  Some of the most popular health education topics this month included: family planning, drinking water, drugs and influenza.  There were 23 babies delivered at clinics. 4,864 patients were vaccinated. AIL monitors the health of children in the clinic areas by completing thorough health screenings and nutritional assessments –1,749 children were assessed for nutritional status and 175 were deemed malnourished.

 AIL also gives reproductive health workshops throughout the year. Here are comments from one attendee, “I am Sohaila, an illiterate woman. I have some health problems and I am always afraid when I get pregnant because I face many difficulties. At this workshop I learned a lot. I didn't know before I had my daughter that child spacing is important and I should prevent pregnancy for at least 3 years to allow for the recovery of the mother and care of the baby.  I have learned about ways to prevent pregnancy like natural calendar, condom, tablet taking and  IUD." 

Proper healthcare and health information education help women to stay healthy, survive childbirth and raise healthy children.

Thanks for your support.
