Afghans Learn Computing for their Jobs

Another Computer Center Opened

The Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) continuously expands their programs to reach and educate as many Afghans as they possibly can.  Recently, we received a report of the addition of another English and Computer Center in one of the AIL Centers located in a very insecure area.  We learned that a local businessman agreed to purchase computers and a solar powered energy source for the center if AIL would agree to provide the teachers for the courses.  Of course, AIL jumped at the chance to reach more people and immediately, 58 new students enrolled in the courses.  It is so exciting to know that 58 more Afghan citizens will learn the necessary skills to use computers in the workplace. 

Please remember that Wednesday, June 13th (beginning at 12:01 AM EST) is a Bonus Day through Global Giving.  Donations received that day will be provided a matching gift of 30, 40 or 50 percent.
