Afghan youth, who studied in refugee schools and graduated from high school, now want to attend college. Make this dream a reality for 120 computer science and business administration students.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Due to war in Afghanistan, university education has been almost non-existent for Afghans. In September 2002, CHI’s partner, the Afghan Institute of Learning, opened Gawhar Shad University to provide post-secondary education for Afghans. The University prepares young Afghans, especially women, in the fields of pedagogy, health and computer science. To date 140 men and women, have graduated, including 65 graduates from the College of Math and Computer Science and 75 from the Nurse Training Program
How will this project solve this problem?
120 students will study math and computer science at the University, which offers classes to Afghan refugees in Pakistan. These students are learning technical and leadership skills in these fields.
Potential Long Term Impact
Students in all curriculum tracks will be highly employable upon graduation and will have the tools that they need to take local, regional, and national decision-making positions.
