Scholarship recipients identified

posted May 21, 2013 by Sakena Yacoobi

Thank you for all that you have contributed towards Creating Hope International’s efforts to raise scholarships for Afghan students. School in Afghanistan has recently restarted, and we have sent the scholarship money to the private schools in Afghanistan.

The schools have identified the 20 students who will receive the scholarships and are currently writing up a short bio for each girl. We will be reporting more about each student in our final report.

Primary school students selected for a scholarship will receive tuition to a private school, books and a uniform. These girls come from families who value education, and are doing their best to make an education a reality for their daughters but need a little help to pay school fees, purchase books and provide the girls with books. Once the scholarships have been awarded, we will be updating you with more information about these students.

Thank you again for your generous support of scholarships for Afghan students. We truly believe that you have helped change the course of these students lives with your generosity.

  • Education & training
  • Gender discrimination

Fund scholarships for 20 Afghan girls.

Why we care: There aren't enough public schools in Afghanistan for girls to attend and private schools are often too expensive

How we're solving this: Scholarships for tuition, books, uniforms and school supplies

The Afghan Institute of Learning, an Afghan women’s non-governmental organization, has been educating Afghan women and children since 1995. To date, Afghan Institute of Learning has provided educational opportunities for 286,453 women and children and has provided teacher training to 20,500 teachers in public and private schools, benefiting more than 5 million students. However, Afghanistan still does not have enough schools for all students to attend and many of the public schools do not offer a quality education.

To meet this need, high quality private schools have been opened but poor girls and orphans do not have the funds to attend. Bright students who are orphans or poor need scholarships for tuition, books, uniforms and school supplies. Afghan Institute of Learning is requesting scholarships, $250 each, for 20 girls to attend private schools for one year.

The Afghan Institute of Learning is an Afghan women’s non-governmental organization founded in 1995 by Dr. Sakena Yacoobi to help address the problem of poor access for Afghan women and children to education and health services, their subsequent inability to support their lives, and the impact of this lack of education and health on Afghan society.

Afghan Institute of Learning is an organization, run by Afghan women, that plays a major part in reconstructing education and health systems capable of reaching the women and children of Afghanistan--whether in refugee camps or in their homes in Afghanistan. Afghan Institute of Learning's visionary programs have had a major impact on Afghanistan and its people. Between 1996 and June 2012, over 10 million Afghans have been direct beneficiaries of AIL education, training and health services. A number of Afghan Institute of Learning’s visionary programs have been replicated or adopted by the Afghan government and other organizations.
