1155 Fast-Tracking Education for Afghan Women and Girls
AIL has 4 fixed site health clinics as well as outreach health units at a Learning Center and at an orphanage and street children facility. AIL’s Herat health program also supports 14 Community Health Workers (CHWs) posts.
Health education changes lives by giving people the information they need to be healthy. The reproductive health education saves lives of women and babies. AIL’s Expectant Mother Workshops gives vital knowledge in a 3 hour class so women are healthy in pregnancy and have safe deliveries. So far in 2017, 194 women (97 pregnant) have attended the workshops. There have been 45 recorded births with no maternal/infant deaths and all deliveries taking place at a medical facility.
One participant said, “I learned a lot in the workshop and now I know what to do to be healthy and safe in delivery.”
Thank you for your support for women in Afghanistan.
AIL is working towards:
SDG Goal 3 – Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all ages.
SDG Goal 4 – Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
