Recently, the Professor Sakena Yacoobi High School, Herat won an International School Award from the British Council. The awards go to schools that demonstrate a commitment to developing global citizens by embedding internationalism throughout the ethos and curriculum of the school.

The Director of the British Council, Afghanistan said: “This globally recognized accreditation helps enrich learning & improve teaching by guiding international learning activities, from introducing international education into the curriculum to embedding it within school culture.”

All the students and staff were thrilled that their schools received this honor. The scholarship recipients are doing well. They know without assistance it would not have been possible for their families to afford a quality education for them.

Thank you for your support.

The students started a new school year in April.  The female scholarship recipients are very excited to attend a good school with all the right uniforms and supplies. They know without assistance it would not have been possible for their families to afford a quality education for them. The photo is of  some of the youngest children.

Here are comments about the two- year Leadership Class attended by 15 girls who were specially selected for the class. This is the sort of quality program the scholarships give poor children access to.

“It has been proven that people are influenced by their surroundings and by engagement with others who can have a big impact on them, their success, behavior and habits. The leadership program organizes meetings with successful people so that, the students get motivated through speaking with them. In the last month the students met two well- known leaders. The purpose of these meetings was to make the young leaders understand their place and create a pattern for themselves. The students introduced themselves and their programs and asked questions about the ways of reaching high positions of leadership and also the challenges that exist along the way. The students took notes and added them to their plans.”

Dr. Yacoobi joined with high level national and international delegates in the "Seville Commitment" - Supporting Localization Efforts for #SDGs.  She said, “AIL has provided SDG services to the most marginalized and disadvantaged for 25 yrs. In my talk I emphasized it is essential to work with local governments and provide resources to local NGOs who are doing good work. Replicate excellent SDG focused programs so No One is Left Behind!” 

Thank you for your support

The new school year starts in April and the girls who have received scholarships are looking forward to the start of school. These girls would not be able to attend a prestigious private school and receive a quality education without the scholarship support. The girls are getting ready buying uniforms and stationary and other supplies ready for the year.

A number of the girls are part of the 30 strong Leadership Class and will be entering the second year of this comprehensive 2 year leadership training experience. Other female students are continuing to work on the Technovation Challenge computer programming contest. Students design apps that address social issues. The private school provides variety and depth in study including music, choral and instrumental, art, citizenship and school politics, art and language learning.

This project has been selected to compete for the 6 places in the Global Giving Girl Fund. This special fund will accrue donations all year and then be split between only 6 projects!  Its a great opportunity!

Your donation of any amount will help us gain a place! Please be a donor we need  ust another 8 donors to become eligible to compete for a place.

Thank you!
