GRANTEES / The Afghan Institute of Learning: what they do
Between 1996 and April 2010, over 7.1 million Afghans have been direct beneficiaries of AIL education, training and health services. A number of AIL's programs have been replicated or adopted by the Afghan government and other NGOs (non-governmental organizations).
AIL presently has offices in Kabul and Herat, Afghanistan and in Peshawar, Pakistan. AIL serves 350,000 women and children annually, is run by women and employs about 480 Afghans, over 70% of who are women. AIL offers pre-school through university education, training opportunities to over 25,000 women and children each year, and health education and health care to 200,000. Since 1996, AIL has been a project partner with Creating Hope International (CHI), a 501(c)(3) non-profit in the United States. Through a long-term technical assistance agreement, CHI provides advice, training, financial management, and fund-raising assistance and acts as fiscal sponsor for AIL upon request.
