The value of play

By Elizabeth A Appleyard | Program Administrator

Children love to play and they are learning while doing it. They learn vital life skills such as compromise, empathy, teamwork, sharing and cooperation. As they explore the world through sight, touch and hearing they become curious and develop their own ideas. Playing board games, such as chess, develops skills in risk taking, rational thinking, perseverance, decision making and acceptance of both failure and success.

Play is part of school life and part of the education process for all ages. The scholarship students benefit from the variety of educational play offered at the schools. Many of them come from poor families that do not have the resources to provide them with games, books or social interaction. School life is enriching beyond their expectation.

In the last few months: The private schools held a scientific, cultural and arts fair with 500 different projects presented which reflected the creativity of the students. Families attended the event and students where keen to show what they have been learning. AIL started up another year of its Youth Club with 133 male and female youth joining. The club provides opportunities for the growth of social activists, scientists, writers and academically minded youth. They learn about good citizenship, democracy, advocacy, creativity, problem solving, teamwork, conflict management and more.

Thank you for your support for the education of Afghan girls and young women.
