Summary

AIL has been empowering Afghans since 1995 by expanding their educational and health opportunities through fostering self-reliance and community participation. An educated and health aware woman is more likely to succeed personally, and to be able to contribute positively economically and in family care leading to self supporting family units.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Afghan women and children missed out on education and quality healthcare for more than a decade. After the Taliban, AIL opened clinics and Learning Centers (LCs) to bring women education and healthcare. AIL is trusted and requests for LCs come from many communities, including those that have been closed to female education in the past. AIL now supports 4 clinics and 40 LCs in Afghanistan and Afghan refugee camps of Pakistan.

How will this project solve this problem?

AIL's clinics and LCs serve 290,000 women and children each year with education and healthcare. Education classes include skills training, leadership/human rights classes, pre-school through secondary education including fast track classes, as well as teacher training and health education.

Potential Long Term Impact

AIL is an Afghan organization, run by women and respectful of Afghan culture. It is highly respected and so conservative villages trust AIL to come into their communities and provide services for thousands of isolated, under served and desperate women with few options to improve their lives. Other NGOs and the Afghan government now use AIL's LC model to provide women's services.
