One young man's achievement

One young Afghan boy who now attends an AIL-supported center in Pakistan had this to say:  “My sister and I were working for our family and collecting dirt, useless papers and things from the street and around the shops.  A shopkeeper told us about this center and asked why we don’t attend.  We joined the center and now we are very happy because we can read everything and the world is bright for us.  Our teacher encourages us a lot.  I study and work very hard and have obtained first position in my class.”
