Etifaq Mosque Learning Center

Etifaq Mosque (WLC) is in a poor area of Kabul City.  AIL has been supporting the center for several years.  For many of the girls in this area, the center is the only place that their families will let them go to get an education.  Here is the story of one of the students:

I am Marofa daughter of Ali Jan.  I was totally illiterate because my family didn’t let me to get education. Corresponding to the interest I had in attending school, I joined this center. With the help of AIL; now I can read and write without any difficulties. Thus, I am so happy and thankful of AIL that contributes girls in getting and continuing their education. I wish them lots of success in this path.
