Spring Planting

It has already been a busy Spring for the Afghan Institute of Learning’s (AIL) green projects.  In Herat, 220 various trees and flowers were planted in two new garden areas.  The plantings included roses, amaranths, and redbuds.  A section for vegetables was also included.

The children at the Orphanage Learning Center recently planted nine trees and many flowers on the grounds of the orphanage as part of the “Connecting Children With Nature” program developed by AIL. At another location in Herat, students of an AIL Learning Center planted eleven more trees and a variety of flowers at the courtyard of their school.

In Kabul, the staff at the AIL Learning Centers have involved the students from kindergarten through high school in planting.  They have planted more than 1000 trees and flowers this Spring at their local schools, learning centers, clinics and at the AIL Office.

 Please remember that Wednesday, June 13th (beginning at 12:01 AM EST) is a Bonus Day through Global Giving.  Donations received that day will be provided a matching gift of 30, 40 or 50 percent.
