Keeping Young Men Involved

Another program has been started in Herat at the restored Gawhar Shad Musalla Complex that is helping to train boys as well as girls.  In addition to their continued offerings in their Learning Centers, The Afghan Institute of Learning has set up several cultural and specialty classes at the Complex in hopes of attracting the attention of young students and to continue some of the historical Afghan craftmaking. 

A new program they are offering is a three month photography course.  Immediately, seven young men enrolled in the course.  AIL continuously expands their programs to keep the young men of Afghanistan engaged in education and job skills.
