Expanding Minds

It is so exciting to watch the expansion of women’s thoughts in
Afghanistan.  By offering an education to them, their thirst for
knowledge just keeps growing.  At every village that AIL is invited
into to start a program or offer a workshop, we see the women
requesting more and more information.  They consistently ask for other
workshops and seminars to be made available to them – and to others in
their communities.

It appears that once you offer a person a chance to become literate –
they just want to continue learning.  These women in the AIL learning
centers request more classes including skill classes such as sewing,
computers, calligraphy, painting, drawing – and subject classes such
as English, science and math.  In addition, as word spreads about
leadership seminars, AIL receives more and more requests to offer
their programs in more communities.  These women want to improve their
lives and their communities and see their Country flourish.

Thank you for supporting these women!
