May 2009 Update

From January through April, AIL has been holding a workshop to help teach Afghans Information Technology skills to help them in their jobs, specifically in the field of education. Two participants of this workshop were interviewed and had the following to say:

“I had many problems with computer programs in my own classes before, and now I can go my class and solve my students’ problems confidently. I will implement all the topics that were discussed in the workshop in my classes to raise students’ awareness. I understand now that the computer is a main part of our lives.”

Another participant said, “I thought that installing Windows and other computer programs was so difficult and that I would never learn to do it. Today I understand that it isn’t difficult to do. This has been the best workshop I have ever attended and I have learned about many issues from this workshop.”
