Review for Alliance For International Women's Rights, East Chatham, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

AIWR's English Program in Afghanistan is a life-changing program, both for the Afghan women and girls who are empowered through the education it provides and the female ESL professionals around the world who teach these remarkable students. Over the past year, my student and I have developed a such a close, meaningful relationship, it's hard to believe we've only communicated digitally. Every class I am amazed by how grateful my student is to learn English and for this wonderful program.

Review for Alliance For International Women's Rights, East Chatham, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I work with AIWR's English Program in Afghanistan to offer long-distance ESL classes to Afghan women and girls living in Kandahar. Using Skype, I meet twice a week with my student, a bright and bubbly 13-year-old girl, to practice English conversation, promote cross-cultural understanding and simply talk about life. For me, and I hope for her, the experience has been nothing short of incredible.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

hearing from my student how much she enjoys our classes and how much she is learning. It's a wonderfully satisfying feeling, and it lets me know that the AIWR's English Program is making a positive difference in her life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

suggest that the AIWR expand its English Program to other countries with traditionally disadvantaged women, so that they too can empower themselves through education. Then, students of each country's English Program could have the opportunity to network with one another and develop an international community of women.
