AIL’s goal is to educate the people of Afghanistan so they can have greater opportunity and better lives. While the conditions in Afghanistan are still challenging, AIL is seeing positive changes in the lives of those Afghans that it works with. AIL’s primary mission is to educate women and children, but never turns away any Afghan seeking help.
In the first two months of the year, AIL has helped to educate 4,706 young men and boys in classes ranging from preschool to literacy, English, computers to traditional Afghan arts such as calligraphy and miniature painting.
Here is a story that shows how the centers are a community resource: “At the beginning of the month, the vaccination campaign began in the whole city area. The AIL Learning Center hosted vaccinators from the department of public health. People brought their children to the center and they were vaccinated. This action meant a large number of children was saved from dangerous diseases. The center likes to help the community and this sort of event means people become aware of the center and what it does. They see we have classes for girls but also for boys who need help.”
Dr. Yacoobi joined with high level national and international delegates in the "Seville Commitment" - Supporting Localization Efforts for #SDGs. She said, “AIL has provided SDG services to the most marginalized and disadvantaged for 25 yrs. In my talk I emphasized it is essential to work with local governments and provide resources to local NGOs who are doing good work. Replicate excellent SDG focused programs so No One is Left Behind!”
AIL is working towards
SDG Goal 4 – Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
