Recently, AIL was asked by the Afghan Ministry of Women’s Affairs to report on the impact AIL’s programs have had. We were amazed by our findings. Since beginning in 1996 through May 2009, 220,970 Afghans have been educated in AIL schools, centers and post-secondary programs and overall 6,778,026 Afghan lives have been directly impacted by AIL programs.
AIL began supporting schools and educational learning centers in Pakistan in 1996. With the fall of the Taliban more than 5 million Afghans returned home and many schools closed. However, approximately 2 million Afghans had no homes or jobs to return to and remain in Pakistan. AIL supports 3 schools and 3 Women’s Learning Centers in Pakistan presently. During the first 6 months of 2009, your donations helped AIL educate 2,161 Afghan refugees in schools and Women’s Learning Centers in Pakistan.
