Tailoring students learn leadership skills

By Elizabeth Appleyard | Program Administrator

AIL provides training in  human rights, women’s rights, leadership, peace, democracy, good citizenship and other capacity building topics. AIL’s leadership training takes place in two ways.  AIL holds in-depth leadership workshops and also integrates the teaching of leadership into every workshop and every class in AIL centers. So far in 2021, 122 people have attended Leadership Workshops.  AIL also supports a special 2 year leadership course for 30 students at the Yacoobi high schools. Leadership workshops include topics such as what makes a good leader, management, listening skills, self- confidence, public- speaking, building good relationships, politics, democracy and peace.

In the centers, leadership concepts are taught by teachers who have taken the AIL leadership workshops. In part, AIL’s Leadership training seeks to help participants understand that anyone can be a leader and to enhance the participants’ ability to take a variety of leadership roles in their community.

Based on feedback from participants, AIL has long known that its leadership training have resulted in the participants taking leadership roles that were new to them following the workshop.  Leadership training is transformative.  If there are female leaders in society, the violence decreases dramatically, because women can solve problems without using weapons and violence. The students in classes, such as tailoring, gain leadership skills along with following their tailoring class curriculum which means for example, tailoring students feel empowered to set up their own home business or become tailoring teachers.

Your support makes all the difference! Thank you.

Covid-19: AIL continues with its relief efforts providing food aid, PPE and running a Covid-19 hospital. All health clinics are operating and Learning Centers and schools are holding classes. Radio Meraj continues to broadcast the latest Covid-19 information.
