Challenge

During the time of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan, education for women and girls was banned. AIL ran underground schools nonetheless, and then in 2003 opened Learning Centers to help make up for "the lost education years". Education services include: literacy, math, language and skills training classes. This project will ensure continuation of these urgently needed, accessible, culturally appropriate educational opportunities.

Solution

Literacy, math, computers, English, and income-generating skills classes such as tailoring are offered at Learning Centers in Herat Province, Afghanistan. Each year over 18,000 students benefit from educational opportunities that include classes and workshops.

Long-Term Impact

A full array of educational services are provided to rural women and girls through Learning Centers in Herat Province, Afghanistan. These centers improve the education of Afghan women in the region giving them more options in life.
