Increasing Funding Request

We at AIL wish to sincerely thank you for your donations to this important project. We have nearly reached our fundraising goal of $200,000. Due to ongoing needs in Afghanistan, we have decided to raise our goal to $300,000. This additional amount will help us to close our projected budget shortfall over the next 18 months. These additional funds will help us to continue the high quality training, education and healthcare of women that have become AIL’s trademark.

 AIL’s annual budget is approximately 1.3 million dollars, with 70% of that funding (approximately $910,000) going directly towards helping Afghan women and girls get the healthcare, education and training that they want and need. AIL will continue to use your donations to establish Women’s Learning Centers (WLC’s) where they are needed, continue funding classes at existing WLC’s, train teachers who can open students minds and provide quality healthcare to those in need.

 The situation for women in Afghanistan is improving. More women and girls have access to education, they are beginning to enter high school and some are continuing their education into college. Their minds are opening and they are becoming leaders in their families and communities. So far in 2012, AIL has served 959,701 Afghans, approximately 70% of whom are women. With your help, we look forward to helping many more.
