Opening the World To Afghan and Nepalese Women and Girls
The purpose of the English Program is to increase the English capacity of women leaders and future women leaders, with a current focus on Afghanistan and Nepal. By improving their English skills, Afghan and Nepalese women and girls can more easily reach out to the international community for education, scholarships, research, advice, funding, as well as share their experiences with the rest of the world. The one-on-one sessions also provide women and girls with individualized mentoring and encouragement from women role models.
The English Program also gives both the students and teachers a unique opportunity to directly meet and learn about women from other cultures. AIWR uses only experienced English teachers as volunteers in this program to ensure that students are getting the best possible education and mentoring.
