Project Report | May 8, 2017
Fast Track to Sewing Skills

By Elizabeth Appleyard | Program Officer

Dear Friends,

We are delighted to let you know that an AIL project has been selected as one of only six projects in the GlobalGiving Girl Fund! The project is 921 Afghan Institute of Learning Empowers Afghan Women. This project will receive one sixth of the donations made during the rest of this year to this special fund!

We would not have been selected for this opportunity without the support we received in the month of March from many donors such as yourselves. Great team effort! Thank you!

Project Update

AIL sewing students are grateful to be able to learn a useful skill which they will use to earn money and to make clothing for their families. In March, 12 Herat area Learning Centers provided sewing classes to a total student body of 852 females who were taking courses that varied in length from 6 to 12 months long. In March, the Kabul centers had 375 females enrolled in sewing classes. Some students are able to fast track through sewing class and become excellent tailors. They gain a skill but also a tremendous sense of accomplishment in completing the course and now being able to contribute to the economic situation of the family.

Recently, AIL purchased a batch of 14 new sewing machines for its centers after a successful fundraising effort. The students were pleased to have new equipment as some of the old machines were less than reliable after years of use.

“My name is Fatema. I am a student of the sewing class. Prior to attending the sewing class at this LC, I took sewing classes elsewhere. I use to have to pay fees and I did not know how to sew well. After attending classes here, I am able to sew different kinds of clothes. I am grateful for this LC and Professor Sakena Yacoobi.”

Thank you for being part of the support for education in Afghanistan.
