Education changing Lives

By Elizabeth Appleyard | Program Officer

Dear Friends, 

AIL just completed its latest monthly review of the Learning Center (LC) program in Afghanistan and Pakistan and the progress is overwhelmingly positive.  In Herat, 10,223 students (including 6,751 females 4,313 of them adolescent girls) participated in Learning Center education last month.  In much of rural Afghanistan, schools are either inadequate or nonexistent.  AIL centers often provide the only academic and life- skills education that many of these adolescent girls and older women get. 

As a result of AIL training and classes, many students are able to apply for professional jobs after school and earn money for their families.  Here is one story from a rural LC in Herat: One of our center’s achievements this month is that one of our students, Zahra was the only applicant selected from a pool of about 100 persons for a job as an employee for an organization.  She completed English and Computer learning programs at our center.  She was usually the best in all her classes.  We are very happy for her success and that she can now help her family.  Her whole family is illiterate and suffering from the weak economy.  Zahra’s new salary will help them to have a better life.  She is thankful for the AIL Learning Center that created this change in her life. 

Thank you for your continued support of the LC program that equips women and girls with the skills they need to better themselves and their communities.
