Bibi's Story

Bibi Lal is an Afghan and a student at one of AIL’s Learning Centers in Pakistan.  She tells her story of how the center has affected her life: “Four years ago we came from Logar because the situation of our life was very bad.  We lived in different places in Peshawar and finally live near this school.  One of our neighbors is a teacher in this school and she told me about the Center that was without any fee and that it accepts students in different classes.  I came here and joined the literacy class to learn some things.  I think learning and getting knowledge is the right of every boy and girl.  Without knowledge, we are like blind and our life is dark so dark.  I am interested in learning to have a bright future.  I want to continue and complete my education.  My brother is in the first class so I need to help and support him.  I am part of this society and it’s my, and everyone’s, responsibility to help each other because no one can live alone and not help others.  I try my best to have a high education and have a comfortable life and to help our people, too, by opening a school or clinic that doesn’t require a payment.”
