Popular Sewing Classes in Herat

By Elizabeth Appleyard | Program Officer

AIL has 33 centers in the Herat area and these have 1,205 students studying sewing. There are 23 teachers and 57 sewing classes. The students are all female with 626 being adolescent age – 10 to 19 years.Knowing how to sew can be life changing for women and gaining this skill can make them open to taking other courses and improving their education. 

Comments from a former student, “I am a sewing class student and grateful for this center because we are poor and could not pay fees for educational and handicraft courses at other places. AIL’s center does not take fees. When I came to this center I did not know anything about sewing but after a few months I was able to sew clothes for myself and my family. After graduating from the class I was able to sew clothing for my neighbors too. I earn money doing this and that helps my family. This center has changed my life.”

Thank you for your support for women's education in Afghanistan.

AIL is working towards: SDG Goal 4 – Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
