Afghans Learn Leadership for the 21st Century

Leadership Workshops Are Important to Many

In 2011, the Afghan Institute of Learning held 17 Leadership Workshops, and had 630
participants.  Of that number, 542 were women.  This
is such a wonderful program that could not have even been initiated 10 years
ago.  The workshops continue for seven days and the participants
learn about leadership skills and also a mix of human rights, democracy and

AIL has had requests to continue and expand the availability of this program. 
A recent participant said that she had been waiting for a long time for
an AIL Leadership Workshop to be held in her area and when she learned that one
was about to begin, she cancelled her meetings – two with a local mayor – and
one with a governor – to attend the workshop.  To her, this chance
to learn was more important than the meetings she had scheduled. 
We are pleased to be able to offer these trainings and to expand the
capacity of the citizens of Afghanistan.

Please keep in mind that Wednesday, March 14, 2012 is Bonus Day
