The Bayat Foundation is proud to continue to provide support for the Afghan Institute of Learning’s girls orphanage in Herat.
The orphanage currently supports approximately 120 girls, and all girls at the orphanage who are old enough to attend school do so daily.
There are cooks who assure that each girl is given healthy, nutritious food to eat. The girls have the opportunity to take supplemental classes taught by 3 AIL teachers at the orphanage. The classes offered include Arabic, sewing and four levels of English. Twice a year each girl is supplied with cloth and is taught how to make a pattern and sew the cloth in to clothing, giving her a skill, which she can use to help earn an income when she leaves the orphanage.
