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.
