Need: Mentoring for Women’s Learning Centers and Health Clinics in Afghanistan

In 1995 as the Taliban came to power, Professor Sakena Yacoobi, founded the Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL). AIL’s goal was to empower poor women and children by providing them access to education and health services through an organization designed and run by Afghan women.

AIL needs people of knowledge and expertise to mentor our staff to help extend the impact in our communities. We are seeking offsite time and expertise towards mentoring doctors, all kinds of lab technicians, accounting trainers, psychology trainers (particularly for PTSD), drug rehab training, carpentry training, and advanced preschool training for creative activities. Our mentorship program is very flexible and we will work with you to determine what time commitment is appropriate for your schedule and expertise in assisting our team in their professional development.

For more information, or if you have resources that you think would be valuable, please contact us.

Volunteer opportunities

My name is Jennifer Brier and I am a Certified Addictions Counselor. I currently work for the Veteran's Administration and I have worked for the Marine Corps and the Navy as a counselor in a civilian capacity. I am therefore familiar with 'trauma-informed' treatment models. I work with veterans daily that experience symptoms of PTSD. I served in the Marine Corps for 10 years and I often wish I had the opportunity to authentically help Afghan women although I know military service is not what I am drawn to participate in anymore. I would love to know that opportunities available for mentoring any professionals in Drug Rehab counseling.

In truth and partnership we connect...
