1155 Fast-Tracking Education for Afghan Women and Girls

AIL’s Learning Centers (LCs) give women the opportunity to learn, to network with other women and to gain both knowledge and capacity. They can use these skills to improve their family life and to take a more active role in their communities. Women attend 6 month courses in literacy, math, sewing and many other topics including English and computers.  So far in 2017, 23,054 students (15,474 female) have attended 6 month courses at 43 LCs mainly in Herat and Kabul locations but also in other provinces.

Some LCs have preschool classes so women can bring their young children to a place where they get quality preschool education. AIL is an innovator in this field being among the first to offer this type of education. In Herat, there are 18 preschool classes operating, with 8 teachers and 457 students (241 female). In Kabul, there are two stand-alone preschools for 186 children (80 female). The children study around 15 different subjects including alphabet, Dari, English, math, health, colors, stories, drawing, sport, music, card playing and connecting with nature. This education prepares the children for school so they are able to excel in kindergarten and beyond. Preschool also helps women by giving their children a good start in education improving the family situation and some women take the opportunity to take classes themselves at the center. One mother said, “The preschool really helped my child and our family. Thank you AIL.” 

Thank you for your interest in our work.
