Food Aid in harsh Winter Weather

The harsh winter of Afghanistan will create need for food aid in the indigent population of the country. AIL assists those as it can. Sometimes people come to the AIL office requesting aid or are referred by AIL Learning Center staff or by the Department of Women's Affairs.

Families with small children or elderly can be the most vulnerable and the boost the food aid gives makes a huge difference. Staff keep a stockpile of goods in readiness for need during the winter and a dedicated sum of money is available to make purchases.

In November, 120 packages of food items were distributed to the poor families at AIL learning centers and teh Department of Women's Affairs. This time the beneficiaries were all needy and disfranchised women who were targeted by the department. The food packages contained rice, cooking oil, peas, kidney beans and tomato paste. 

Thank you for your support.

AIL Publishes Own Mobile Literacy Book

AIL works to promote literacy by providing classes at centers in Herat and Kabul. It also publishes an educational magazine and whenever possible books.  Two books published recently help mobile literacy class teachers.

Mobile Literacy Messages: a book supporting the literacy class that uses texting to teach the alphabet and up to grade 4 literacy in 4 months. Some mobile literacy classes take place at rural Herat centers and are for illiterate women.

Teacher Training: helping teachers improve their teaching skills at workshops and in staff meetings at centers. Some teachers who study with AIL go on to become teachers at AIL Learning Centers.

Other books published recently included:

Leadership Skills: supporting leadership development at centers, in workshops and the youth 2 year leadership course at the private Yacoobi High School. Women at the centers want to know how to advocate for themselves, speak in public and engage more fully in their communities. The mobile literacy students learn about leadership and text messages on the same.

Healthcare Messages for AIL clinics, mobile literacy classes and the ZMQ mobile app pregnancy monitoring program which AIL was a part of.

Peace Education: the most recent book published. Peace education is promoted at centers, preschools and in workshops.
