CAI's Impact


creates a future filled with hope

Thanks to you, the futures of the people and the communities we serve are filled with hope. You’re giving them the ultimate tool of empowerment: an education. When girls and women feel empowered, their ability to impact their own life and the well-being of their families, communities, and nation grows exponentially. It all begins with your donation.

Let’s look at the big picture

Multiply every preschooler who attends an early childhood program, every girl who graduates from secondary school, every college student with a degree, and every woman who’s earning income thanks to vocational training, and you start to see the impact of your donation. See where and how your contribution is changing lives in our latest Impact Report.

Nadia an 8-year old girl from Aghanistan

At 8 years old, Nadia had never seen the inside of a classroom. She couldn’t read. She couldn’t write. And she couldn’t count. “School is important for everyone,” she says, “because we learn about ourselves and determine our futures here.”

It is about Fakhriya who couldn’t find a job in her tiny rural town, so she started her own sewing business after graduating from a CAI-sponsored entrepreneurship training program. Now she earns enough to pay herself and her two employees. “The training changed my life,” she said.

Pakistani girl writing on blackboard

Meet Dilshad, a young Pakistani student. She thought she would never learn to read or write because her mountain village had no school. Today Dilshad and 63 other girls and boys are learning the alphabet in their community school.

Our friends say thank you!

Gratitude is at the heart of everything we do. Without your support, the programs and services that are changing lives for the better wouldn’t be happening. No one feels the gratitude more than our program recipients, community members, and partners in Central Asia. They’re here to say THANK YOU!

Your gift is so much bigger than one girl

Serving more than 3,000 women and children is only the beginning. Empowered by an education, those thousands of individuals are impacting their families, communities, and future generations. Whole societies are being transformed. Everyone benefits when girls and women are educated. Thank you for your passion and your commitment to changing the world through education. Your donation is where it starts.
