AIL publishes a magazine and various books during the year. One recent publication was an educational book about peace. The book is designed to be used for children and adults and is a resource for AIL staff and those who are teachers in Learning Centers and schools.

The book includes a comprehensive review of peace, giving multiple illustrative examples of concepts. Here are some examples:

What peace is : no color, linguistic or religious discrimination,

What peace means:  reconciliation, unity and collaboration

What can I do to be peaceful: think positively, respect oneself and others

What factors threaten peace:

What does having peace mean: having the potential to reconcile after an argument

Factors that affect peace building in a community: cultural, economic  difference or difficulties

Culture’s effect on peace building: ideas and thoughts are shaped by the culture people grow up in both in society and within their families

Covid-19 has created many challenges but AIL has adapted and is continuing to pay its staff and has set up a number of Covid-19 relief programs. These programs include, food packs, cooked meals, disinfection kits, virus education, health care in clinics, PPE production and donating health supplies to the government. AIL has also adapted its education program to distance learning with education packs and teachers available by email, a hotline and in person. It is vital that all students continue their learning and do not fall behind in education.

AIL works to promote literacy for women and children by providing classes at its Learning Centers in Herat and Kabul. It also publishes a magazine and whenever possible books. Books published by AIL recently include:

Mobile Literacy Messages: a book supporting the literacy class that uses texting to teach the alphabet and up to grade 4 literacy in 4 months. Some mobile literacy classes take place at rural Herat centers and are for illiterate women.

Leadership Skills: supporting leadership development at centers, in workshops and the youth 2 year leadership course at the private Yacoobi High School. Women at the centers want to know how to advocate for themselves, speak in public and engage more fully in their communities.

Teacher Training: helping teachers improve their teaching skills at workshops and in staff meetings at centers. Some teachers who study with AIL go on to become teachers at AIL Learning Centers.

Healthcare Messages for AIL clinics, mobile literacy classes and the ZMQ mobile app pregnancy monitoring program which AIL was a part of.

Peace Education: the most recent book published. Peace education is promoted at centers, preschools and in workshops.

Access to literary material is limited in poor communities in Afghanistan. AIL publishes a magazine which is widely distributed through its offices, clinics and Learning Centers. AIL also supports a library at the Citadel complex in Herat and has its own libraries. The two AIL offices have substantial libraries. The Kabul office has 3,000 books and Herat has 2,500. In addition, five Learning Centers also maintain their own libraries. The largest of these has 2,000 books and the smallest 200.

Students and staff benefit from having access to varied reading matter and the libraries are also quiet places for study.

Thank you for your support for our work with literacy.
