AIL supports rural centers and centers for rural Afghan Women in Herat Province, Afghanistan.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
No education has been available to women and girls in the western province of Herat, Afghanistan, for the last decade under the Taliban regime. Project partner AIL began offering Women's Learning Centers to women and girls in rural Herat during 2003. These education services include literacy and skills training classes. This project will ensure continuation of these urgently needed, accessible, culturally sensitive services.
How will this project solve this problem?
Literacy, English, and income-generating skills classes are offered at the Women's Learning Centers in Herat, Afghanistan to over 7,000 students a year.
Potential Long Term Impact
A full array of educational services are offered to hard-to-reach rural women and girls through Women's Learning Center sites in Herat, Afghanistan. These centers improve the education of Afghan women in the region.
