So far in 2018, AIL has run 7 classes for 245 women. The courses finished at the end of July. The students all enjoyed the course and learned a lot. In the final month, students sent hundreds of messages on health, life skills and communication and practiced skills such as respect, trust, honesty.
The health messages helped them be up to date with topics such as hygiene and preventive care. They are now comfortable with using technology, can read and write and have made new friends. All of this has improved their self- confidence and inter- personal skills. They have learned to set goals, work towards them and achieve them. Almost all the students said they wanted to continue their education and participate in regular school. Once the final results of the classes have been computed we will report on them to you.
Here is a story: "My name Marjan and I studied in the Mobile Literacy Class. I want to explain the impact of this class on my life. I got married when I was only fourteen. My husband is fifteen years older than me. This age difference meant a lot of incompatibility between us and this got bigger day by day. My children also suffer from that conflict. We view the world from two different aspects. Once he asked me to go to the literacy class and to study. At first, I thought he was making fun of me. However, he registered my name in this class. I have learned a comprehensive knowledge of cellphones and its settings. I have also become aware of social and moral issues in life, through studying social and skills messages. I learn at least one important tip every day and gradually this affected my character. My relationship with my husband changed. All of my family noticed these great positive changes in me. My life is getting better and I enjoy our new life, and owe all this happiness to Dr. Sakena Yacoobi who started this Learning Center for us."
