Winters in Afghanistan can be very harsh with very cold temperatures and heavy snowfall. AIL’s environment program teaches people what they can do to deal with winter weather.
Our programs on Meraj TV and Radio include information on home insulation, air pollution caused by coal burning, benefits of planting trees including as wind breaks, fixing leaks to save water and measures to prevent freezing pipes. The aim of the program is to improve people’s health, conserve resources and so help mitigate the effects of climate change.
AIL helps communities deal with increasing water scarcity issues including digging wells for drinking water. Most recently a well was dug in Yelmarb area, District 5 of Mazar Sharif Balkh Province. The people of this area have been struggling with the lack of healthy drinking water for years, and their problems are solved by digging this well. So far, ten wells have been dug in Herat, Bamyan and Balkh provinces for people to have easy access to clean drinking water.
As summer has arrived in Afghanistan the issues around climate change and its effects on humans and other life are important topics to discuss. AIL produces programs on the environment which go out on TV and Radio Meraj and through social media. People need education in how to care for themselves and livestock in high heat. They also need to know how their daily life contributes to global warming and what to do to minimize their impact.
Reaching children and youth people with these messages in one of the primary goals. The younger generation are more aware of saving water, maintaining green spaces, cleaning up the environment, recycling, reducing plastic use, reducing use of coal, insulation of homes to prevent heat loss. They educate the older members of their families and neighbors which creates community level change.

AIL’s environmental work includes raising awareness among the public about issues to do with the environment and what individuals and communities can do the help. AIL produces programs which go out on TV and Radio Meraj and through social media. People need to know that almost all environmental issues have been affected by human activity and that their actions make a difference.
The environment program also reaches students in schools teaching about the changes in the environment and what they can do to help prevent its destruction. Students learn about saving water, planting trees, cleaning up, recycling, reducing plastic use, reducing use of coal, insulation to prevent heat loss. Students spread what they learn to family, friends and community. Small changes by individuals begin to improve environments.
