Ayni creates quality educational opportunities in Afghanistan that empower and inspire children and their families to build peaceful, just and life-affirming communities. Since the removal of the Taliban from power in 2001, millions of children have entered the Afghan school system—most for the first time. One third of these children are girls.
In 2011, Ayni launched the Village Schools Initiative with the goal of completing the physical infrastructure requirements of nine remote village schools by 2013. In February 2012, the Afghan team expanded to include two Afghan women, Atifa and Hosnia. They work with the girls’ schools as liaisons for our programs and to promote better more frequent communication between our office, the schools, and our donors. This grant is helping to support one of the Girls’ School Liaisons. Employing Afghan women in the schools offers accountability, a role model/aspirational structure, and ensures quality control for the girls in the Village Schools Initiative.
