So far in 2018, 10,100 adolescent girls have benefited from AIL’s Learning Center education. They are taking classes in a variety of subjects ranging from literacy and math to sewing and computers.AIL classes also include messages about health, democracy, laws, elections, women’s rights and leadership and sometimes some words of English. Discussions are sometimes held on topics relevant at the time such as what is in the news like seasonal illnesses or coming up soon such as an election.
The idea is to educate these girls but also to inform them of the world around them, how they can keep themselves healthy and what opportunities there are in the wider society. Sewing and computing provide marketable skills while leadership lessons enable the girls to grow and develop their own capacity and learn how to expand their role in community.
“Khadija is a student in English class. She had a lot of problems in understanding the English language in school classes. After joining the class at the center, her problems were solved and she caught up with her peers. She even teaches English to her sisters and brothers at home. Khadija has been a role model for other students to take action and try something different to improve their performance in a subject that they are having problems with.”
Thank you for your interest in Afghan adolescent girls and the challenges they face.
