Ayenda Learning Center Still Flourishing after Six Years

  1. 1.  Afghanistan has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the world and a huge number of orphans. In response to these alarming statistics, the Bayat Foundation partnered with the Ayenda Foundation in 2008 to build the Ayenda Learning Center in Bamiyan Province. The project was a major milestone in the Ayenda Foundation's mission to rebuild Afghanistan by educating the nation's most vulnerable children and its future leaders.
  2. 2.  Since opening its doors over six years ago, the Ayenda Learning Center in Bamiyan continues to thrive. At a major ceremony attended by regional and international dignitaries in June 2011, the center opened a computer lab. Equipped with a satellite Internet connection and new Dell computers, the lab afforded the center's students their first communication with the world beyond their own community.
  3. 3.  Today, the computer lab has a pivotal role in educating girls at the Ayenda Center, which recently hired a new English and computer teacher with special qualifications to enhance the school's curriculum. The hands-on technical exposure received by the center's students will vastly broaden their opportunities for education, employment, and leadership.
