Starting at Noon EST today you can double your donation to the Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL)!! GlobalGiving and Microsoft YouthSpark are offering $200,000 in matching funds, but the funds will go fast! The last time they offered a 100% match funds ran out in just 15 minutes.

If you’d like to help AIL, please visit our project page right at Noon EST. 

AIL’s mobile literacy program is using mobile phones and texting to teach girls to read. One of the mobile literacy students says, “My name is Hava. Before this course, I didn’t know how to use a mobile phone, but I have learned during this class. I also learned how to read and write. I have learned about what is happening in my country. I have even made many good friends. I am so happy to come to the course each day and spend time with my friends. We practice reading and writing by sending each other text messages. I am so thankful to AIL for this course.”

We thank you for helping to support our project. We hope that you will support us again at noon today!
