Mission Statement

Central Asia Institute supports and promotes community-based education and literacy, especially for girls, in remote regions of Central Asia. Over 150 million children in the world (age 5-14) are deprived of education due to poverty, slavery, sexual discrimination, racial discrimination, racism and religious intolerance, and the cost of educating each child in the third world is about $1 per month per child. Several global studies show that a (at least) fifth grade education level for girls, is the most significant factor in imporverished societies to: 1. Decrease Infant Mortality Rates 2. Decrease / Stabilize Population Growth 3. Significantly improve the basic quality of health and life quality over a generation In Pakistan and Afghanistan, CAI's projects focus on girl's education, literacy and basic health education. After the October 2005, Pakistan earthquake in Azad Kashmir, CAI has launched about two dozen community-based initiatives to help support ongoing education and schools for children. In Afghanistan, we are the first and one of few organizations helping to promote education initiatives in the remote regions of the Wakhan corridor, and other provinces like Kunar, Khost, Nanghahar, Wardak, Panjshir, Takhar, and Nuristan. CAI's community projects are primarily located in remote, underserved regions where few organizations work. Often, CAI works in regions where the literacy rate is less than 5% and one out of three babies born alive dies before age one.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Central Asia Institute (CAI) have been worked in close collaboration with local community partnerships in rural Pakistan and Afghanistan officially since 1996, and previous through the voluntary work of its' founder Greg Mortenson since 1996. As of 2011, CAI has established 178 schools, and also runs an additional two dozen more temporary schools in refugee camps, areas of conflict, war, natural disasters, or where extremists have not allowed girls to attend schools. Approximately 68,000 students, including 54,000 females attend CAI schools, which are taught by a total of about 1,240 teachers. Azad Kashmir, with about 4 million people.   The impacted area served by CAI are in rural northern Pakistan (Balistan, Charpusan, Hunza, Gojal, Gupis, NWFP, with about 1,400,000 people, and in rural Asad Kashmir with about 3,500,000 people. Most of the CAI schools are in areas where there previously was no or few schools, and most the CAI female students are the first girls to attend schools in their regions.   In Afghanistan, CAI works in rural and sometimes volatile regions of several provinces, including Kunar, Nanghahar, Khost, Paktia, Logar, Parwan, Wardak, Uruzgan, Khandahar, Badakshan, Nuristan, Takhar with more areas established in 2011. Schools are established in close partnerships with local communities who initiate, implement and oversee the schools entirely, in partnership with community leaders. CAI provides teacher training and support, skilled labor (masons and carpenters), and materials like wood, cement, rebar, but the community must match CAI donation with 50% free sweat equity (manual labor sometimes 5,000+ free days), free materials, free donated land and more. That insures local by-in, and perhaps the reason that non of CAI's Aghanistan schools have been destroyed by militants.   CAI has helped with disaster relief in Pakistan after the 2005 earthquake and 2010 flood, primarily to set up temporary tent schools in refugee camps, and long term follow up.
