The Kabul office has been very busy. In May, they organized two Methodology Seminars for 80 teachers and two Reproductive Health Workshops for 79 women. All workshops were held in Panjshir Province.

The teacher training seminars were 10 days long. The teachers were mostly new hires who had never attended a teacher training event and were from secondary and high schools. Topics included: lesson plans, teaching methods, exams, grading, psychology, practicalities. The teachers used modern methods in the seminar such as group work, question and answer, games, role playing and research tasks. The teachers started out not even knowing how to make a lesson plan or set teaching objectives.

“I am Noorullah, teacher in a primary school. I graduated from the Teacher Training Institute and have taught Dari for two years.  I always wanted to be a teacher, but standing in front of the class for the first time I realized it is a hard job. I had many discipline problems in my classes. The classes were noisy and my colleagues insulted me. I started to hate the job and thought of leaving. The school principal suggested the seminar run by AIL. I learned a lot such as, how to keep control, relationships with the students and modern methods. Now I don’t need to leave the job and I can be a successful teacher.”

Thank you for your interest.

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.
