Access to literary material is limited in poor communities in Afghanistan. AIL publishes a magazine which is widely distributed through its offices, clinics and Learning Centers. AIL also supports a library at the Citadel complex in Herat and has its own libraries. The two AIL offices have substantial libraries. The Kabul office has 3,000 books and Herat has 2,500. In addition, five Learning Centers also maintain their own libraries. The largest of these has 2,000 books and the smallest 200.

Students and staff benefit from having access to varied reading matter and the libraries are also quiet places for study.

Thank you for your support for our work with literacy.

The ever popular Mobile Literacy Classes are underway with 10 classes running from 1 May to 31 August for 350 women.  We fully anticipate that 85-90% of these women will be reading at the 4th grade level by the end of the 4 months. That is how effective this literacy program is!  Texting is used as a means to accelerate literacy acquisition, engage women in discourse and create social bonds reducing isolation. The teacher sets questions by text which the students must respond to in kind.All students love this format and text much more than required by the syllabus. The students start out with little or no literacy skill, quickly progressing while having fun and socializing.

Thanks for your support.

Last month, the Meraj team were busy preparing new programs about Gawharshad Bigom Library in Herat, glass working (a traditional Afghan art) and Radio Meraj activities. They also worked on new hardware for the computers and background music for recorded videos. Two interviews were recorded with a staff reporter and a manager from Radio Meraj as well as with a senior manager from AIL, who talked about the organization’s activities.

Thank you for your continued interest.
