Newsflash: Dr. Yacoobi  is one of BBC 100 Women 2017!  

Learning Centers (LCs) in Kabul and Herat play a crucial role in providing educational opportunities to disadvantaged women in small communities. So far in 2017, 22,203 students (14,823 female) have attended 6 month long courses at 44 LCs in various locations. In addition to regular classes in academics, sewing and other subjects all students at LCs are taught fundamental life skills such as health information, peace education and leadership.

Leadership is essential to every society. If there are no leaders then there is no government which leads to insecurity and chaos. Economic, political and educational and cultural activities decline.  Leadership skills training whether in regular classroom setting or in special intensive workshop formats have always been part of AIL’s program.  The training builds the capacity of the youth and women and girls especially. They learn how to voice their opinions and take leadership roles. Sessions start with explanations of what a leader is, the difference between leadership and management and how to build self confidence in leadership. Communication skills, knowledge of social justice, politics and democracy are all covered.

One student said, “I learned that everyone can be a leader. I learned how to express myself and treat other people who are competing with me. I gained self- confidence. Leadership concerns influencing others and helping them be more capable so they can handle conflicts. I will be able to use these skills in my life.”

In 2017, AIL has provided 176 people (137 female) with Leadership Workshops adding to the leadership skills knowledge they gained in LC classes.

Thank you for your interest in our work.
