This project follows students through their academic careers supporting those who need help at a secondary school level and the same students or others who need help in their college years.

The school age children are excited to receive a scholarship as this ensures another year for them at a school they love. The Professor Yacoobi Private School in Herat is recognized as one of the best in the city. Academic standards are high and there are many supplemental and extra curricula activities on offer. One special class is the 30 student two year Leadership Course. Last month this class studied democracy and its impact in the development of society. The topics included: pillars of good government, free and independent media, military relations and rights and responsibilities. A lawyer from the Afghan Institute of Learning’s Legal Aid Clinic came to the school and held a workshop for the Leadership Course students. The topics covered included: what is law, amending laws, know the law and prevention of law breaking.  Students commented saying, “I enjoyed the workshop and learned a lot and how it is important to know about the laws and especially citizenship laws.” 

Thank you for your continued support for these young people which means they are getting a good education at a high quality school.

Newsflash: CHI Vice President, Dr. Yacoobi  is one of BBC 100 Women 2017!

This project follows students through their academic careers supporting those who need it at school and the same students or others who need help in the college years.

Currently, there are 9 students receiving help from CHI as they study at Herat universities, 6 are female. Scholarship recipients have studied a wide range of degree subjects including, English, mining and geology, psychology, political science, economics and management, religious law, Dari literature, nursing, computer science, graphic design and stomatology. Nine students in Kabul attending 7 universities have received scholarships, 5 are female. Three of the students are studying law and politics, and two are on a BBA course. A scholarship also went to one literature and one engineering student and one religious law student.

Aadiba had this to say, “I am 23 years old and married with a 5 year old daughter. My husband is headmaster of an educational department in Herat city and  I am working as a teacher.I teach here while my daughter is studying at one of the Professor Yacoobi kindergartens. I teach in the mornings and do my studies in Dari Literature in the afternoons at one of the private universities in Herat city. My tuition is being paid by the Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) … (a CHI project)… AIL has been the biggest supporter in our life.

This scholarship has been really helpful for my educational goals and got me to a great level of education. I would never have been able to pay my university if I was not given this scholarship. It has helped me change my life. Since attending university, I teach higher level classes and I receive a higher salary. This helps my husband pay our living expenses. In addition, my daughter is getting better at her lessons. We live in peace and are comfortable and we make better plans for the future of our daughter.  Professor Sakena Yaccobi is a great and inspiring leader in my life. She guides me to my educational destination and providing women with such opportunities is very helpful in our society.”

Thank you for your continued support for education in Afghanistan.

Dear Friends, 

We are working with partners in Afghanistan to help high school and university students providing scholarships to those who would struggle to afford these educational opportunities.  Dr. Yacoobi’s Private Schools (2 in Herat and 2 in Kabul and one kindergarten) have 2,137 students, 1,208 female. Most of the recent high school scholarship recipients are at the second Herat branch school.

The school curriculum is very varied including traditional academics, music, sport such as soccer and cycling and modern skills like computing. They also have a special 2 year Leadership Course which has 30 students (15 female).  The Gold Medal ceremony was a great success and acknowledged the achievements of students in a variety of academic areas.

Here is a story from one student “I am Amena and a student in the 11th grade. I have been at this school for 4 years and am getting the best level of education along with great classes such as song, leadership, library, laboratory and sports. I am a member of the Leadership Class where I learn skills like planning, reading and peace and democracy. I get a scholarship which means I can attend the school for free. I won a gold medal for one subject at the gold medal ceremony. I was proud and so was my family.”

Thank you for your continued support for education in Afghanistan.

Radio Meraj wins more Top Awards in Media in Western Afghanistan!
The Afghanistan Institute for Research and Studies held a contest for 161 media outlets. Meraj was permitted to enter 3 categories and won all 3!  Meraj won best news package, best analysis and speakers, and best innovative programming. In addition, a photographer working with AIL won the best photography prize for one of his AIL photographs.
The competition attracted media outlets from all over the western zone including the well- known stations that have been operating for decades. Meraj’s success is remarkable in that it has been in operation for only two years yet won awards usually associated with stations of 5 plus years of experience. It won the most awards among all the existing media.

Dear Friends, 

This project has a two- fold purpose, to support private secondary school students and also to support some of these as they go onto university. In Dr. Yacoobi’s Private Schools (2 in Herat and 2 in Kabul and one kindergarten) there are 2,137 students, 1,208 female. The scholarship recipients continue to do well in the private school learning environment. These children would not be able to attend this quality school without financial aid.

The second Herat school started as a branch out of the main school. The branch school has a total student body of 217, 115 girls and 102 boys. This project provides additional funds to students at this school. The funds donated are added in to make up scholarships. Most recently 41 scholarships were awarded to students including supplemental funds from this project. All the students and their families are delighted to receive support for their studies.

“I am Mohebullah one of the students at Professor Sakena Yaccobi private school and I thank Professor Sakena Yaccobi and the school manager for providing us with such pure education. The school management has provided me and many other classmates with great educational opportunities as there have been great scholarships available while providing a high standard of education. The scholarship saved my life since now I can attend all the classes and learn the update to date lessons.”

This project also supports 12 young people as they continue their studies at the university level. Currently, at Herat University there are 6 women and 3 men who have CHI scholarships. The women are studying different degrees including, law, psychology, mining and geology, history, computers and management. The men are studying mining and geology, computers and medical tech. In Kabul, at a university there are 3 CHI scholarship recipients, 2 women and 1 man.

Thank you for your continued support for education in Afghanistan.
