Imagine our delight when we read that one of AIL’s Learning Centers in a very unsecured area near Kabul had more than doubled their enrollment of students from one month’s report to the next. Imagine our absolute surprise to learn that the additional students were all boys! Immediately we asked questions of the AIL Kabul Office. They reported that a local businessman purchased computers and a solar powered device that provides electricity to the center in order to expand the programs there. The Center hired two additional teachers and is offering English and Computer courses for young men. Immediately, 58 males enrolled in these courses. The Center intends to expand this training to females once the security situation is more controlled.
