Thank your for your support!

Thank you for your contributions towards the Afghan Institute of Learning’s education programs in Pakistan.

During 2012, AIL was able to educate 2,945 Afghan refugees living in Pakistan through it’s schools, learning centers and preschool education program. 

1,336 women were educated in AIL’s two learning centers. Subjects taught included English, literacy and Arabic. In June, AIL staff and the community decided to close one of the learning centers after deciding that it was no longer necessary. This center had been established to educate those refugees affected by the earthquakes in Pakistan, and by June of last year, most of the families had gone home.  

AIL’s preschool education program served 19 young students last year. AIL’s preschool education program has been held up as a model for other preschools to follow. Finally, during 2012, AIL’s 3 primary schools served a total of 1590 students.
