Starting at Noon EST today you can double your donation to the Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL)!! GlobalGiving and Microsoft YouthSpark are offering $200,000 in matching funds, but the funds will go fast! The last time they offered a 100% match funds ran out in just 15 minutes.

If you’d like to help AIL, please visit our project page right at Noon EST.

Your donation will help young men like Ahmad. Ahmad has been attending classes at an AIL Learning center for one year and says, “AIL has changed my life in positive ways. I started to study English and computers here one year ago. Before starting classes I didn’t even know how to turn a computer on. Now I’ve learned to use seven different programs on the computer and I’ve learned to speak English. After I graduated from the course I took the employment exam for a trading company in town. I got the job! My salary is excellent and I can help support my family. After seeing what I was able to do, my cousin has decided to take the AIL classes also. I owe all of my successes to AIL.”

We thank you for supporting AIL’s efforts to educate young Afghans, and hope that you will support us again today at noon!!
