Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) is a nongovernmental organization (NGO) founded by Nobel Prize nominee Sakena Yacoobi, a longtime advocate for women's rights in Afghanistan. The organization is dedicated to meeting the health and education needs of Afghan women and children. With five clinics serving mostly rural areas, AIL is staffed and operated by Afghan women, providing health services and education throughout the country.

With three clinics in rural areas of Afghanistan’s Herat and Kabul provinces, AIL provides health and education for Afghan women, in partnership with Direct Relief International (DRI) and the Abbott Fund. More than 300,000 women and children have received AIL services, which include classes in literacy and health, vaccinations, childhood nutritional assessments, reproductive health services and community health workshops.

The Abbott Fund provides support to the Afghan Institute of Learning through its partner DRI.
