In 2010, AIL began offering medical services to the girls at the orphanages, and after a government ministry saw the quality of care that AIL was offering to the girls, they asked us to begin offering educational programming as well, which we have been doing since 2011. With your help, we can offer support to the girls at the orphanage for six months.

Send 35 Afghan Girls to School!!

Afghanistan does not have enough public schools for all children to attend, and even in areas where public schools do exist, they do often not offer a high quality education. To address this need, Dr. Sakena Yacoobi founded 4 private schools 2 in Herat and 2 in Kabul. Connecther is hoping to provide 35 Afghan girls with scholarships to attend these private schools, which will provide the girls with a high quality education and change the course of their life for the better.
