Project Report | Aug 2, 2010
Summer Update 2010

By Sondra Johnson | Project Administrator

Looking at the first six months of 2010, the Afghan Institute of Learning has 9 active Education Learning Centers for rural Afghan women in Herat. Two new centers opened in April. 4,734 students of all ages come to these learning centers to become educated in such subjects as literacy, language, sewing and tailoring, computers, carpet weaving, English, math, beauty shop management, miniature painting, embroidery, macramé, Arabic, Pushto, and engraving.

Students and teachers at three of the centers had the opportunity to attend workshops on women’s health and democracy.

Here is a story from one of the sewing students at the Sar Asia learning center: “I was born in an illiterate family. My family didn’t want me to study until I came here. I hope that one day I will become a good tailor in my society for the servicing of my people. Afghanistan women, as you know, are suffering many pains right to have the need to help. I think I should work hard in my society because my country needs to reconstruct. Thanks for AIL who help the people of my village.”
