 Update from the Schools

The scholarship children at the Yacoobi Private Schools in Herat and Kabul receive a comprehensive education. They are encouraged to express themselves through art, prose, poetry and public speaking. The goal of the education at the schools is to produce well rounded individuals who are equipped mentally and emotionally for the modern world.

Art is an important subject in the curriculum. Children love the art classes whether painting, model making or drawing. Painting is an important cultural tradition in Afghanistan especially the specialized form of miniature painting and ornate calligraphy. AIL works to introduce children to the wealth of cultural history of their country including traditional arts and crafts. Art is self-expression but it also develops children’s observation and focus skills, appreciation for shade and light and color. Staff believe engaging in art also helps children with mental health as it is restful for them in a busy day and in a society that has so much strife and violence.

Thank you for your support!

Twelve students are working in teams on apps to use as entries in this year’s Technovation Challenge. This contest is for girls and encourages them to get involved in coding and the world of computing. The girls are 14 years old.

Team one has two students and they are creating an app called Music Club that uses Afghan musical instruments and is part academic and part cultural education.

Team two has four students and their app is called Keep Clean and provides information on how to keep the environment clean. It is useful for all people and is especially aimed at the primary school aged children so they will learn from an early age about being responsible for the environment.

Team three has 4 students and their app provides information of what to do before, during and after an earthquake.

The class mentor said, “The groups are working on class activities like business plans, presentations, pitch videos and demos. They will upload their work on the Technovation Challenge site and compete online this year.” 

Thank you for your support!

There are many needy young Afghans who would like to attend a quality school. Unfortunately, there are just not enough places and many private schools are too expensive for poor people. CHI provides scholarships to help with this situation. Students get assistance with books, tuition and uniforms in schools in Herat and Kabul. Quite simply, enrolling in a quality school changes lives, giving children the advantages that good education provides.

The private school run by Dr. Yacoobi provides students with a rounded education in academics, the arts, sports and spiritual/philosophical and life skills learning.  As one teacher said, “Music classes give students the opportunity to challenge their abilities and to discover and promote their talents. They work with various musical instruments and singing getting technical music skill learning and providing the students with a time of self- expression, calmness and solace that comes from music. Instruments available include: guitar, piano, keyboard and voice. Singing includes cultural songs and all can be involved in performances at school events and public ceremonies.”

 Thank you for your continued support for young people which enables them to get a good education at a high quality school or university.

Computer skills are highly valued and of interest to the students at the Professor Sakena Yacoobi Private Schools.   Once again, AIL supported female students from the private school in Herat are taking part in the girls only, Technovation Challenge contest. This contest is international in nature and groups of young people work in teams to develop apps to solve real world problems. Last year, the team from PSYPS gained first place in Afghanistan and entered the semi- final round with teams from all over the world.

AIL has purchased 3 PCs specifically for this year’s project and 3 staff are guiding students in their work. The team consists of 12 students and 2 mentors. The team is currently broken down into 3 smaller groups divided according to skill and interest level and age so there are 2 junior teams and 1 senior. The AIL mentors are teaching the girls how to build apps and the groups are researching a problem in society that can be addressed through an app. This class gives the girls experience in real world problem solving, critical and logical thinking, leadership, team work and computer coding. At the time of the contest they will also learn how to make an oral presentation and put together a power point slide show. The girls have commented on how much they enjoy this class, “We are happy to have this opportunity to work on creating an app that could help people improve their lives or improve society in some way.”

Thank you for your continued support for young people which enables them to get a good education at a high quality school or university.

As the year draws to a close, we want to thank you for your support in 2017. Your donations have helped many people improve their lives. Thank you for being a part of this!  Stories are the best way for us to show how you have helped poor Afghans improve their lives and communities. Here is one of our favorites from this year. A student said, "In my opinion the first and best thing that youth need to do is to transform ourselves and then to transform the community. This way we will be able to motivate society and our country toward development and a more prosperous future.

Everybody needs knowledge and perception in order to have a good life. We have learned that studying and reading books is “a light in the path of life”. Our countrymen spend less time on reading and studying useful topics than people in developed countries. This is one of the common reasons why our people lack academic awareness.

Our teacher tells us that a society develops when its people develop two habits, exercise and reading books. In this class we understand the purpose of reading books. Every month we read, summarize and present one book in front of the class. We have been doing this for a year. Now reading has become one of our daily habits. If I don't read some pages during the day, I feel like I have lost something."

Thank you for your continued support for young people which enables them to get a good education at a high quality school or university. Please read our 2017 Newsletter for more information.
