Computing classes are always popular in Learning Centers where they are offered. Students are interested in the subject and see long term benefits as computing skills help them to secure jobs. There are 845 computer students studying at AIL Learning Centers.

Nadia is a Computer class student at a center in Herat. She said, “I have been in computer class for 5 months and I learned lots of new things and I am now a fully skilled computer programmer. Computer skills are extremely important and everyone needs to have them.  I am so proud of myself, that I learned this skill and can work for my countrymen.  Recently, I got a part- time job at a foundation for women. There I exchange emails and coordinate meetings for the board of directors. By earning money from my new job, I can buy whatever I need to have. I am also able to teach computer skills to my children, and don’t need to pay anyone else to do it. I really do love computers. I have also learned to communicate with my friends and promote my skills. Whenever a person can earn money she can live independently and support their family.”

Thank you for your support!
