The AIL education program is going well and classes are being held at 43 Learning Centers (LCs) in Afghanistan and Pakistan, including 15 rural centers around Herat. A diverse range of subjects are offered including: math, literacy, Arabic, English, sewing, miniature painting, computers and physics. So far 13,888 students (including 9,044 females and 4,844 males) participated in Learning Center education. There are 150 females in 4 month long mobile literacy classes. AIL staff maintain libraries in many LCs to help students with their studies and expose them to as varied a selection of reading matter as possible. Here is a typical story from one center, “We could solve the family problem of two students this month. One of them is a young woman; her husband is an opium user. He didn’t let his wife join the center. But we talked with them and were able to get his agreement. After a lot of talk and face to face contact of the center’s manager and elders of the area he did agree with her. Now the woman is learning in our center. She is very happy about this and thanked AIL staff for changing her life.” This story reflects the growing problem of opium addiction in the male population and its devastating consequences on both the men and the female members of their families. AIL's education program gives women and girls hope for their futures and means to earn a living if needed to support their families.
TODAY, your donation can go further! Donate between 9:00am and 11:59pm and help AIL continue its valuable work providing education.
