Women in a Leadership Workshop
Thank you so much for your support of the Afghan Institute of Learning’s schools and learning centers for Afghan refugees in Pakistan. These schools and learning centers are often the only place where the refugees can receive education and training. During the later part of 2013, the AIL staff in Pakistan has been able to offer several leadership workshops to refugees at these schools and learning centers. The workshops have been very well received, as you can see below.
The Afghan Institute of Learning office in Pakistan offered a leadership workshop to 40 women. After the workshop, one of the participants said,
I am very thankful for the opportunity to come to this workshop. The information was very useful, and very important for me to learn. All of the participants and trainers were very kind and friendly. We were given the change to talk and tell each other our stories, and I learned a great deal from these stories and from the things the trainers told me. When this workshop began, I was too shy to share my stories, but each day I became more brave and took part in the discussions. I was very happy to be a part of this workshop, and I will share what I have learned with my family.”
