Twenty-five years of war have devastated Afghanistan. Roads, buildings, homes, and farms are destroyed. There aren’t yet enough schools and learning centers. In the midst of this ruin, the fall of the Taliban has brought a renewed sense of hope for peace. Many rural and poor Afghans aren’t waiting for the government and are starting their own learning centers for women and children in abandoned homes or other buildings. Five centers serving 2,350 women and children need training and seed money.


Project partner AIL will provide partial funding to ten Afghan organizations serving more than 2,350 students. AIL will also train their managers and teachers to strengthen and sustain their work despite ongoing instability and poor funding.

Long-Term Impact

AIL is a grassroots Afghan organization with 10 years of successful programs. Now AIL is sharing its expertise with new grassroots centers to prepare them to provide quality education services in Afghan communities today and for future generations.
