Magazine to be Published June 2013

posted May 20, 2013 by Sakena Yacoobi

We at the Afghan Institute of Learning would like to thank all of you who have donated to support the publication of our magazine.

The staff of the Afghan Institute of Learning is currently writing articles and taking pictures for the magazine, which is planned to be published by June 2013.

  • Education & training
  • Gender discrimination
  • Media

The Afghan Institute of Learning is creating a magazine to develop critical thinking skills for Afghan and Pakistani students in refugee camps.

Why we care: Students have limited resources in refugee camps besides their textbooks to occupy their time.

How we're solving this: Publishing an acclaimed quarterly magazine, Nidai Talim.

Afghan students have very little to read other than their textbooks. To encourage students to develop critical thinking skills, the Afghan Institute of Learning, an Afghan non-governmental organization led by women, publishes a quarterly magazine called Nidai Talim for all levels of students.

The magazine has articles on a variety of subjects (including ethics, health, democracy, culture, human rights, gender, peace and leadership), poems, ethics, games and puzzles. 

Three thousand copies of the highly acclaimed magazine are distributed to schools, learning centers and libraries in Afghanistan and Pakistan refugee camps, with more than 30,000 students reading each issue.  The estimated cost to produce and publish one issue of the magazine is $9,163 per issue—30 cents per reader. AIL is requesting $4,000 to cover the costs of publishing 3000 color copies of the magazine.

I give because teaching critical thinking to young minds can pay off for generations. I give because our minds can enslave or free us. I am forever grateful I was raised in a culture that valued debate, science, and freedom of thought and speech.
