Summary

Many millions of Afghans have no access to reading books in school and are learning to read from textbooks only. The Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) purchases and publishes books for libraries in its Learning Centers and elsewhere and in the schools that it supports.. AIL also provides literacy classes for tens of thousands of Afghans, many of them female.

Challenge

AIL has responded to the crisis in education in Afghanistan by providing classes in many topics, including literacy to poor urban and rural Afghans, especially women and children. AIL reaches these people through its Learning Centers and through schools. There are not enough texts that meet the educational needs of Afghans, or relevant books are not being produced in sufficient quantities.

Solution

The project goal is to increase the level of literacy especially among women and girls. The aim is to have small lending libraries in all of AIL's Learning Centers and offices and to provide literacy education for all ages. AIL will publish and purchase books and provide at least 8 levels of literacy education.

Long-Term Impact

Reading is a vital skill and helps people gain knowledge, understand other people's perspectives and cultures, communicate and think clearly and to see a world outside of the one in which they live. Many Afghans lack the skill of reading and AIL's literacy classes are available to all ages. AIL will provide reading material to libraries by publishing it or purchasing books so increasing the available reading material at its centers
