Need: Copy machines for Women’s Learning Centers in Afghanistan


Since the overthrow of the Taliban, the Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) has played a major role in reconstructing Afghan society. Today, AIL reaches 350,000 women and children annually through its 42 program sites, including four health clinics and 38 education learning centers in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Of the 400 Afghans that AIL employs, over 70% are women.

Over the past 12 years, often at great risk, Founder Sakena Yacoobi has pioneered innovative and creative ways to deliver these critical services but we need your help to continue to serve the women and young girls of Afghanistan.

Please help us by donating or enabling us to purchase copy machines so that we can duplicate informative materials and distribute them throughout all of the Women’s Learning Centers.
