AIL is concerned about those children, especially girls who are unable to attend school or a Learning Center and in consequence have little or no access to education. This lack of educational opportunity leads to fewer options in the future, hopelessness and low self- esteem in young people.
To address this growing concern, AIL has partnered with Dr. Yacoobi’s TV Meraj to set up Meraj Academy and develop a daily, televised high school curriculum for grades 7-12. Teaching takes place 4 times a day in one hour lessons. Students are able to submit questions via YouTube, Telegram, email or phone to teachers. There is also an archive of lessons for future reference. This service is available throughout the Asian region and live streamed.
“It has been my long-held dream to reach all the children of Afghanistan with education. Desperation brings on innovation, especially in a war- torn nation, where people have to be creative and adaptable to bring about change and success. My wish is that this televised education will bring hope to those children in danger of being left behind in education.” Dr. Sakena Yacoobi
This innovative approach to education will make a big difference in the lives of adolescent girls unable to access traditional classrooms. We will follow the success of the program closely and alter and adapt it as needed.
