AIL works to promote literacy by providing classes at its Learning Centers in Herat and Kabul. Some literacy classes are fast track, including the mobile literacy classes. AIL also publishes a magazine and whenever possible books which help teachers and students of the fast track classes. Recently books were published by AIL including:
Mobile Literacy Messages: a book supporting the fast track literacy class that uses texting to teach the alphabet and up to grade 4 literacy in 4 months. Mobile literacy classes take place at Herat centers and are for illiterate women.
Leadership Skills: supporting leadership development at centers, in workshops and the youth 2 year leadership course at the private Yacoobi High School. Students at the centers want to know how to advocate for themselves, speak in public and engage more fully in their communities.
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.
Healthcare Messages: for AIL clinics, fast track 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.
