Raising the rate of literacy

Raising the rate of literacy among the Afghan population is of huge importance not just for individual lives but also for the society and nation as a whole. Classes help but so does promoting libraries, reading and providing reading materials. AIL does all of these things.

The Citadel Library in Herat, which AIL supports continues to attract people with visitor numbers of around 170-200.  AIL promotes the art of calligraphy by providing a class at the Citadel for 23 male students.

AIL’s work promoting libraries continues and it now has a library at its office in Herat which is available to all. The library contains 3,500 volumes for all ages and covering many subjects such as education, research, technology, computer, English, management, leadership, entertainment, poetry, story telling and much more.  AIL staff and their colleagues come to the library and study their favorite books in their free time. There are some expensive books in the library which are difficult to find in the marketplace.

 Akhgar, an AIL trainer  said,  “The library is perfect. I can find any book I like to study and research. I study for one hour every day in my free time. To be honest these books have changed my life significantly. I feel more able and proficient in running my classes since I started studying. I encourage my students to study in their free time and also to expand the culture of studying among youths and children”.             

Thank you for your interest in literacy in Afghanistan.
