Azada is thankful for AIL

Azada, is one Afghan woman who says she is thankful for the AIL Learning Centers.  She said, “I had an illiterate family.  My husband and my grandmother had very old ideas.  One day, I asked my husband if it is possible for me to go to a learning center.  Unfortunately, my husband was very harsh, and he prevented me from going to school.  I repeatedly asked my husband, and finally, he said to me you can go join a course with all of the children.  My oldest child was 14, the next 13 and the third was 6.  We all went to the center and registered ourselves for different classes.  My children and I are now literate.  Four people from one family became literate, which shows the impact of AIL activities.  They save the lives of families.”
