We are providing education to a growing number of women and girls of all ages and backgrounds. In the first two months of the year, we brought education to over 9,236 girls in subjects such as literacy, English, Arabic, and computers. We have also provided these women and girls with opportunities to gain skills in sewing, tailoring, carpet and silk weaving, macramé, and painting.
All of these skills open doors to careers and other opportunities to make an income. In addition, our Fast-Track program has opened doors to women and girls by providing them with flexible schedules to learn the basics as fast or as slow as they are able to. We wish to thank you all for your generosity and compassion in making these hopeful changes possible!
One center reported recently, “One of our sewing graduates has become a sewing teacher at a learning center. She now has 25 students that she teaches every day. The students are happy to have her as their teacher and are learning many things each day.”
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!”
AIL is working towards: SDG Goal 4 – Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
