Last year at CGI I met Dr. Sakena Yacoobi of the Afghan Institute of Learning.  This year I was able to spend a few minutes with her and want to say a few words about her organization.

The Afghan Institute of Learning is managed by women, providing health and education services to Afghan women and children.  From their brochure:

"We believe that educated people, especially educated women and girls, are the key to a peaceful and prosperous future for Afghanistan.  With that in mind, we work to improve the education and health of women and children, to empower them with training and to foster self-reliance."

Please take a moment to visit their website and get to know what the organization is accomplishing for the Afghan people.
