Seminars and Workshops

By Elizabeth A Appleyard | Program Administrator

The seminars and workshops training program is a cornerstone of AIL’s education policy. The workshops cover a variety of subjects including teacher training.  The quality of teachers directly affects the quality of education students receive, while having information on leadership, democracy, self-confidence and reproductive health helps all women advocate for themselves.

AIL’s training program reaches many provinces. In the last few months, AIL held 22 workshops in Mazir-al-Sharif.  In August, AIL continued its expansion of the teacher training program and visited Daikundi, Balkh and Bamyan Provinces. In total, 6 teacher training and literacy seminars were held for 238 women. The teacher training seminars run over 10 days and are comprehensive in approach and designed for teachers who have never had training in modern teaching methods. It is still the case that many teachers enter the job with only a high school education and no formal training.

“The supervisor at my school had complained that I did not know how to teach and said he would demote me from high school to elementary school teaching. This was a blow to my self-confidence and I worried about my future. This seminar helped to see that elementary teaching is just as important as high school. I can now plan my lessons and complete the syllabus on time. I also learned how to do exams and new methods such as role playing and question and answer.”

The staff also held 4 workshops in leadership for 190 students while they were in Balkh and Bamyan Province.  There were five 5- day reproductive health workshops for 285 people, some of them teachers. Attendees relay what they have learned to female relatives. The topics covered included pregnancy, infant care, birth control, hygiene, vaccines and birthing

 Thank you for your support which is helping Afghan women improve their lives.
