Peace and Election Workshops

Living in the midst of war, Afghans are looking for opportunities to live life free of daily conflict. In 2010, AIL implemented peace education workshops after hearing requests by people who attended AIL’s leadership workshops which have a peace component.  There were 6 peace workshops held for 251 (81% female) participants.  2010 was also an election year in Afghanistan so AIL responded with election related workshops.

These trainings offer quality knowledge to teachers and community members, who in turn impact their students and families well beyond the classroom and the subjects they were taught.  The ability for teachers and students to think critically, to ask questions, and to discuss ideas is the foundation for building a new future for Afghanistan.
