Why our funding goal has increaed

Dear donors to the ‘Learning Centers for Rural Afghan Women in Herat:

We want to sincerely thank you for your many donations to this important project in Afghanistan. Our original goal was to reach $20,000.00, and we are nearly at that goal. However, due to the ongoing needs in Afghanistan, there is a still critical demand to offer education choices for Afghan women that live in remote rural areas. Giving these women the opportunity to become literate, get an education and learn skills to make a living is essential for a strong family and community.

We have increased our funding goal to $30,000.00 to address this ongoing need. The Afghan Institute of Learning and Creating Hope International have used your donated funds to establish and continue the classes in several of our educational learning centers. Students are learning to read and have gone on to other subjects such as math, science, and computer technology. Women are learning skills like tailoring to help their families and earn an income. In all our classes we also discuss human rights, democratic principles and peace. Your donations have, and will, continue to allow rural Afghan women a chance to improve and grow.

Thank you again for all your support.
