Need: High quality generators in Afghanistan

The Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) was the first non-governmental organization (NGO) to start Women’s Learning Centers (WLCs) in Afghan refugee camps in 2002. However, electricity needed to power lights and machinery is scarce and unreliable. About 90 per cent of the country’s population still has no access to power and Afghan energy distribution ranks among the lowest in the world.

Without a sufficient and stable supply of electricity, AIL cannot operate at full capacity, we cannot heat the Women’s Learning Centers, or provide the medical services that the Afghan women and young children need.

Please help us by donating or enabling us to purchase high quality generators so that we can offer round-the-clock electricity throughout all of the Women’s Learning Centers.
