Decades of war and civil strife have made Afghans the world's largest refugee population. Three million Afghans still reside in Pakistan. Their homes in Afghanistan have been destroyed. Prospects for re-establishing themselves in Afghanistan today are poor because of ongoing violence and the lack of shelter, clean drinking water, and sanitation. As repatriation efforts continue, Afghan refugees need to advance their education in Pakistan so they will be prepared for life back home.


Preschool through secondary education will be provided to 1,500 Afghan refugee women and children through schools and centers. Support will include partial funding, supplies, monitoring, and training for teachers and managers.

Long-Term Impact

Children who studied in AIL's refugee schools have repatriated to Afghanistan and been able to join government schools at age appropriate grade levels. Women who have studied at the centers become literate and learn skills to support themselves.
