AIL is dedicated to seeing all people thrive especially the youth of Afghanistan. Boys are encouraged to study and develop academic skills as well as social skills. In addition, exercise of the body for its own sake is important, as well as the benefits it provides to support mental pursuits.
Here is a story from one AIL center:
“The Youth Council at the center made a cup for football competitions. In the tournament, 4 teams competed and the winning team received the cup and a prize made by the center manager. The matches encouraged all students to do some exercise in the clubs and at homes. AIL’s approach has always been to treat the whole person and physical exercise is especially important for the young. AIL encourages youth to do exercises because it expands their talents and helps them be more active and alert in daily activities and lessons. For example, one of the students said, “I like football. I am in a football team at the AIL center. I exercise every other day. I like it because it makes me fresh and healthy. I recommend everyone in my family and my friends to exercise”.
Healthy body, healthy mind! Exercise helps boys be ready and able to study and believe in their capacity to succeed.
