AIL is always looking for ways to increase literacy among Afghan women. It offers classes in reading and writing, publishes a magazine and supports or provides libraries. Another way is through book publishing and recently the book, Focus of Thought, was published by AIL. 

This slim volume of 124 pages is aimed to help people to focus and therefore be more effective. The chapters include principles of concentration, concentration in reading, working and positive thinking as well as senses in the classroom. Reading is good for the individual but concentration in reading and in life is better, being in the moment helps us to be effective, alert, empathetic and aware of others.  At the book presentation all the attendees received a copy and AIL hopes to get copies to all its offices and Learning Centers. 

Here is a story from one of the LC libraries, “I am a student of English at an AIL learning center. I am a school girl as well. My teachers at school gave me projects to search for. Fortunately I find lots of good books in the library at the AIL center which I can use as references. I study in this library and borrow some books to work on my projects. I also help my classmates to study and search on their projects. I am recommending my friends use this library.” 

Thank you for your continued support for this vital educational resource, books!

As the year draws to a close we reflect on what we have done and how this has changed lives for the better. AIL’s Learning Centers (LCs) give women the opportunity to learn, to network with other women and to gain both knowledge and capacity. This year, 23,054 students (15,474 female) have attended 6 month courses at 43 LCs mainly in Herat and Kabul locations

Stories are the best way for us to show how you help poor Afghans improve their lives and communities. Here is one of our favorites from the year:  A student said, "In my opinion the first and best thing that youth need to do is to transform ourselves and then to transform the community. This way we will be able to motivate society and our country toward development and a more prosperous future.

Everybody needs knowledge and perception in order to have a good life. We have learned that studying and reading books is “a light in the path of life”. Our countrymen spend less time on reading and studying useful topics than people in developed countries. This is one of the common reasons why our people lack academic awareness.

Our teacher tells us that a society develops when its people develop two habits, exercise and reading books. In this class we understand the purpose of reading books. Every month we read, summarize and present one book in front of the class. We have been doing this for a year. Now reading has become one of our daily habits. If I don't read some pages during the day, I feel like I have lost something."

Books are vital to learning and having good quality literature available makes all the difference to people’s educational progress at centers.  Sometimes the books are donated or come from the Women’s affairs directorate as happened last month. Other times AIL purchases books or publishes them.We have many stories of great success achieved by students at AIL centers. These successes would not have occurred without access to quality literature.

One Kabul center reported that, Our English teacher, named Sadaf who learn English from AIL courses passed the Konor Exam (a university entry exam) successfully and will now join Kabul Medical University. Her father named Salih herachievement is due to AIL who made my daughter learn and study her books and now achieved joining a medical faculty.” Another manager said that, “A former home school teacher in Herat is now Deputy Director to the Governor of Herat.” 

Thank you for your continued support for this vital educational resource, books!

Newsflash: Dr. Yacoobi  is one of BBC 100 Women 2017!   

AIL publishes a magazine called Nida e Taleem. This was started as a response to  growing need, particularly from young people, for information on education, health, culture and other topics. The magazine is published twice a year.The editorial board held a meeting recently and reviewed the last publication looking for ways to improve its content. They decided to appoint a senior editor to oversee the next publication and resolved to follow all AIL policies. The content will include scientific, cultural, medical and literary topics. There are also sections with jokes, English lessons, and an article for children. 

Dr. Yacoobi said, “I want the magazine to have articles about AIL activities and for great attention to be paid to correct grammar and spelling. These things are important. We want everyone to find something of interest in our magazine and also tell them about what AIL does.” 

The board members were assigned responsibility for different topics.  The meeting also reviewed making a distribution plan for the magazine and following up on contacts who might be able to offer help with improving the publication. 

Thank you for your continued support.
