Recent Developments in Afghanistan

Afghanistan has been stunned by recent developments and people are adapting as best they can, to a new situation which remains both unclear and uncertain as to the future.  AIL’s current priority is to provide urgently needed assistance to the thousands of displaced families who have flooded into Kabul and Herat. Some centers provide a staging point for aid. Our staff are all working, though offices currently are men only with women working from home. The centers are all female and await instructions from the Taliban with regard to procedures required for reopening centers to our students. Our clinics have expanded their capacity to cope with the large numbers of refugees that are in the area.

The Yacoobi private schools are open and operating under the rules that have been given such as dividing male and female. It is exam season and students are studying hard and sitting their exams as usual. It is a great credit to them and their teachers as everyone has heightened levels of fear, stress and anxiety. The private TV and Radio Meraj are not broadcasting but awaiting instructions in how to recommence and staff are creating content and archiving materials for broadcast at a later date.

We have been touched by the outreach of support and outpouring of donations to help the Afghan people. We thank you for standing by Afghanistan as it faces another humanitarian crisis on top of Covid-19 and drought. 

Herat centers update

2021 has been a busy year for AIL’s Learning Centers. The centers are a vital educational resource for many women who have missed out on schooling or wish to improve their knowledge base and learn new skills.

So far this year, Herat centers have helped 12,400 students (7,992 female including 4,149 adolescent females). There are 19 rural centers and 14 are urban. Popular subjects include: Arabic, sewing, literacy and English. Preschool classes were offered at 8 Herat centers reaching 482 students. (Recently one preschool class closed). Courses in sewing, beautician and English and computing are income generating skills which help women gain employment or start their own home business. 

Your support makes all the difference! Thank you.
