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.
Recently, the Professor Sakena Yacoobi High School, Herat won an International School Award from the British Council. The awards go to schools that demonstrate a commitment to developing global citizens by embedding internationalism throughout the ethos and curriculum of the school. The Director of the British Council, Afghanistan said: “This globally recognized accreditation helps enrich learning & improve teaching by guiding international learning activities, from introducing international education into the curriculum to embedding it within school culture.”
