A Great Number of Women Reached

 Nearly 6,400 women have studied at Learning Centers in Herat this year alone.  Subjects they have covered include Arabic, Literacy, Sewing, Carpet Weaving, English, Computer, Beautician, Physics, Math, Embroidery and Painting.

One student, from Zainabia had this to say:

“I am 35 years old. I have three children before that I came in course I was an illiterate woman.  I said for myself I wish I could study in order to development of Afghanistan so, I started my effort and struggle to learn in Zainabia center in literacy class.  My teacher is a kind woman also I try hard and study my lessons carefully. Right now I am in eleven class in the governmental school and the next year I will be graduate in  high school.  I wish to be a good teacher in future and I should help our society.  I am thankful for AIL that always works for capacity building of the people.”
