THE STORY:

CREATING HOPE INTERNATIONAL wrote -

More than 85% of Afghan women are illiterate. If an Afghan girl goes to school, chances are she will not go past the 6th grade. As if this weren’t enough, women do not have access to quality healthcare, or education. 

The Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) is an Afghan NGO, led by women, providing 400,000 Afghans, mostly women and children, with quality education and healthcare each year.

                        "I want to read"

With your help, our Learning Centers teach literacy, sewing, computers, math, English and more to 25,000 students each year. Where there is no school, AIL’s Learning Centers fill the void. Where there are schools, we educate the mothers of the students, allowing to them help with homework and, more importantly, get jobs.

                   “I want to feel well”

Our Clinics offer healthcare to the sick, and preventative medicine, such as vaccines, to the healthy. All women and children receive health education so that they can keep their families and communities healthy.  

Afghan women and children need our help, and we need yours

$10 provides a girl with the books and supplies she needs to go to class.

$65 pays for a woman to take a literacy class.

$325 pays a teacher’s salary for 6 months.

$1000 provides healthcare and education to 640 women.

You will allow us to continue supporting women like Sima, a young Afghan woman who graduated from AIL’s computer program. At the promotion ceremony, Sima was thrilled to tell everyone that because of the skills she had learned in class, she had been hired by a construction company. Her husband is a day laborer, and not able to earn enough to support their family. Now, thanks to the computer class, she has begun her job and is earning an income. Sima realizes that she might face challenges being a woman working outside of the home, but she feels ready to face them. She said “I know I might face problems because I am a woman, and there are some who feel that a woman shouldn’t work outside of the home, but I want to work and will ignore whatever is said about me. I thank AIL for giving me this chance to change my life”

You can help us to continue transforming the lives of Afghan women and children by supporting our schools and clinics.
