Women in an AIL Computer Class

Thank you so much for supporting our project to provide an education to the women in Herat Province! As the situation in Afghanistan continues to change, your support becomes more important than ever. With your help, we will be able to continue offering a high quality education to the women who rely on us. During the first 6 months of 2014, the 21 Learning Centers overseen by the Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) office in Herat, Afghanistan were able to provide an education to 5,983 women!

The AIL Learning Centers offer a variety of classes, from literacy and math, to sewing and embroidery, English and Arabic, cosmetology and even computers! Recently classes of computer students were promoted to the next level in their studies. At the promotion ceremony, a young woman named Sima was thrilled to share that because of her computer skills, a construction company had hired her! Her husband is a day laborer, and is not able to earn enough to support his family. Now, thanks to the AIL computer class, she is able to work and earn an income. Sima realizes that she might face challenges being a woman working outside of the home, but feels that she is ready to face them. She said, “I know that I might face problems because I am a woman, and there are some who feel that a woman shouldn’t work outside the home, but I want to work and will ignore whatever is said about me. I thank AIL for giving me this chance to change my life.”

Every day, your support is helping AIL to education women just like Sima. Women who want to learn a skill, so that they can change their lives. We thank you so much for seeing the value in our project, and hope that you will continue to help the women of Herat, Afghanistan who seek to become educated. Thank you.
