Sewing Classes Popular in 2018

At the start of this new year we reflect on what we have achieved in 2018 and how this has changed women’s lives for the better. AIL’s Learning Centers (LCs) give women the opportunity to learn, to network with other women and to gain both knowledge and increase their capacity.

In 2018, 28,121 (19,095 female) attended courses at 48 LCs. The courses offered at centers vary according to need. Literacy and sewing are popular, also English, computers, math, weaving. There are some centers that are specialist such as 3 that are preschool only and 1 that is boys computing, 2 that offer computers/English combination classes only. There are 32 centers in the Herat area (16 rural) and 13 in the Kabul area.

In 2018 there were 2,993 sewing students at AIL centers.  One center in the Kabul area reported that a graduate of their sewing class in now a teacher at another center. She has 25 students who she works with every day. “I am so happy that I got to go to the AIL center and learn sewing. It changed my life and now I can teach others and earn an income.”

Thank you for your continued interest and we hope you will read the annual newsletter attached.
