Twenty-five years of war and civil strife have devastated Afghanistan. Roads, buildings, homes, farms, and other infrastructure are destroyed. Education and health services are spotty and insufficient to meet the overwhelming needs. In the midst of this ruin, the fall of the Taliban has brought a renewed sense of hope for peace and a better future. Many local Afghans have recognized these needs and started small schools or learning centers to contribute to the reconstruction of the homeland.


Project partner AIL will provide partial funding to an Afghan education NGO with about 300 students. AIL will also train their managers and teachers to strengthen and sustain their work despite ongoing instability and poor funding.

Long-Term Impact

AIL was begun by an Afghan woman who wanted to make a difference in her country. Today, AIL serve 350,000 people per year and has much to share with other Afghan NGOs about how to begin and sustain education programs.
