Helping Teachers

Our 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!

AIL has always emphasized the importance of quality teaching as the underpinning of an effective education system for Afghanistan. In 2019, AIL trained 979 teachers (579 female) in modern teaching methods. Some teachers also participated in workshops on various subjects such as the role of women, leadership, peace and health.

Attending a quality teacher training seminar can be life changing for a teacher, especially for those who have had little formal instruction in how to be a teacher. Here is one story, Ahmad from Balkh Province said, “After I graduated from 12th grade I became a teacher of English for 3 years at a private course.  A friend told me of job opportunities at governmental schools. I passed the required exams and so got a job at the high school. A while ago the supervisor from the department told me to write a yearly and monthly plan. I did not have experience of this and was angry. Then the school principal told me the Directorate of Education planned to hold methodology seminars in cooperation with AIL. I learned a great deal during the 10 day seminar such as leadership, controlling the class, planning and hourly targets. It has made a great difference in my teaching life.”

Thank you for your interest in improving teaching standards in Afghanistan.

Distribution of Food Aid in December

Our 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!

In December 2019, 200 packages of food items, including cooking oil, wheat, peas, beans, and tomato paste were distributed to poor families and residents in the northern areas of Herat. Most of these people are internally displaced persons. The beneficiaries were targeted by the Department of Women’s Affairs and the distribution took place in coordination with that department. When the  weather gets cold greater stress is placed on  these people who are too poor to buy the food they need. These packages provide sustenance for a few months.

Thank you for your support.
