Community Health Workers

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 addition to clinic operations, AIL runs 14 Community Health Worker (CHW) posts, training the workers and supporting them.  Each CHW team has two members, a male and a female.  CHWs give first aid, provide prescribed contraceptives, care for pregnant women, work with malnourished children and their mothers and give health education as well as referring villagers to clinics. 

The CHW program has been very successful in being a point of triage taking care of some things that do not need clinic care. This has relieved clinic patient volume as well as spreading health education which helps prevent illness in the first place.   Since they are trusted local people, patients are more likely to seek further medical treatment with their recommendation, which is a great help in these rural communities. In 2019, CHWs made 37,912 visits to families.

Thank you for your support.

AIL is working towards:

SDG Goal 3 – Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all ages.

SDG Goal 4 – Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

Radio helps Afghans live Better Lives

Radio Meraj, continues to impact lives of listeners providing education and news. It also helps people grow in understanding of themselves and their role in family and community.

Here is a story that illustrates the impact the station is having.  Elham from Gozara District said, "I was looking for a good psychiatrist to help me get rid of daily conflicts and discord in my marriage. Those disagreements were making my life too bitter and I was thinking of ending it. I was listening to Radio Meraj and heard the Health Program and there happened to be a psychologist as the host.  He talked eloquently about the difficulties of life, giving vivid illustrations. I figured out my problem is identical to the case he detailed. By following his suggestions about attitudes and different actions I got peace back in my life. Thank you for your honest broadcasting." 

Thank you for your continued interest.

Thank you

Dear Friend,

Thank you for your generous donation which has meant this project is now funded. AIL is going to wait until more funds are secured before purchasing sewing machines that way they will get a better deal.

Your gift will be life changing for many women. When a woman learns to sew she gains the ability to earn an income, raise her self esteem and her stature in her family.  This is transformational. Often women who complete the sewing class go on to take other classes at centres such as literacy and math.  Sewing is a gateway skill for women to more education and increased capacity.

Thank you.
