The new school year began in Afghanistan in late March and this year, another 2,760 Afghan high school girls enrolled in HTAC's well-regarded computer education program. To date, 24,717 girls have enrolled in this life-changing course.
Girls (like boys) learn all key computer skills- Windows, Word, Excel, Power-Point (and for those schools equipped), how to navigate the internet. To make computer learning both fun and meaningful, students get to use the computer to complete school assignments and work on various projects. For a recent cultural exchange project, a class of girls researched the state and town of their American sister school. Becoming computer literate by the time these girls graduate is critical if they are to have an opportunity to seek productive jobs in Afghanistan's expanding information technology marketplace.
