In August, the “Connecting Children with Nature” curriculum was expanded a little further. In addition to the subjects mentioned in our last report, the following topics were covered:
Information about tree/plant diseases and how to eliminate them
Identifying different kinds of trees
Controlling the growth of plants and trees
Responsibility of people to establish a green environment
How to make medicines from plants
Another AIL Project, “Transform Lives of 70,000 Afghan Adolescent Girls” has been chosen to be part of the Girl Effect Challenge, which runs from October 15 through November 15, 2011. Approximately 60 projects have been included in this challenge. The top six projects with the highest number of unique donations will become part of the Girl Effect Fund for one year and each is expected to earn an additional $25,000.
