Learning Centers for Rural Afghan Women in Herat

by Afghan Institute of Learning
Nov 4, 2010


Following is a story of a woman who has been helped by one of the Afghan Institute of Learning’s centers in Herat Province:

“I am 35 years old. I had three children before I came to this course. I was an illiterate woman. I said to myself, “I wish I could study in order to help the development of Afghanistan so, I started my efforts and struggled for learning in AIL’s center in a literacy class. My teacher is a kind woman; also I try hard and study my lessons carefully. Right now I am in eleventh class in the governmental school and the next year I will be graduating from high school. I wish to be a good teacher in the future and I should help our society.  I am thankful for AIL that always works for capacity building of the people.
