AIL's Leadership Program

AIL provides training in  human rights, women’s rights, leadership, peace, democracy, good citizenship and other capacity building topics. AIL’s leadership training takes place in two ways.  AIL holds in-depth leadership workshops and also integrates the teaching of leadership into every workshop and every class at AIL centers, including those in Herat. So far in 2021, 135 people have attended leadership workshops. AIL also supports a special 2 year leadership course for 30 students at the Yacoobi high schools.

Leadership workshops include topics such as what makes a good leader, management, listening skills, self- confidence, public speaking, building good relationships, politics, democracy and peace. In the centers, leadership concepts are taught by teachers who have taken the AIL leadership workshops. In part, AIL’s Leadership training seeks to help participants understand that anyone can be a leader and to enhance the participants’ ability to take a variety of leadership roles in their community which demonstrate democratic core values of liberty- personal, political, economic freedom, common good, justice and equality. 

So far this year, AIL has held leadership workshops in Kabul for women in the Balkh province. With the growing security issue there is significant threat to women’s’ and girls’ education especially for those who reside in rural areas. It is important for women to have access to the quality education, like what is offered at AIL Learning Centers. Beyond leadership, women have the desire to learn so much, protect and empower themselves, and impact their communities.

Your support makes all the difference! Thank you.
