Sakena Yacoobi, President and Executive Director of the Afghan Institute for Learning (AIL), watched her mother give birth to 16 children and saw her nearly bleed to death because there were no attending doctors. Only 5 of Sakenas siblings survived. Thankfully her mom survived, a rarity in Afghanistan where one in 7 women die in childbirth.
