Thank you for your support of AIL’s project. While the situation in Afghanistan continues to prove challenging, with your help AIL is finding ways to continue bringing high quality education to the young women of Afghanistan.
The staff of AIL in Herat has developed several short peace and human rights workshops and has begun presenting them to high school students in the surrounding area. During August and September the workshop was presented to 376 high school students.
Additionally, the AIL staff has been presenting a version of the workshop to the general public at the AIL office. A total of 215 Afghans attended these trainings in the month of September alone.
AIL is excited by the feedback that it is receiving from participants of these workshops. They are taking the lessons learned and implementing them in their own lives, as well as sharing the lessons with others. While the concept behind these workshops can seem very abstract, they are producing concrete changes in those who attend them. They have lit the torch of peace for those in attendance, and they are spreading the message with all who will listen.
Don’t forget! The holidays are a great time to share your passion for AIL and the great work that they do! GlobalGiving offers gift certificates which can be used to donate to AIL’s projects. Also, beginning December 1st, the initial donation made by recurring donors will be matched 100% by GlobalGiving. There is only $25,000 available in matching funds, so help AIL take advantage of this opportunity early!
