Thank you for providing a computer to our Afghan Girls computer program. We operate three centers and each computer center requires 20 computers to resource our students. Our centers are the most popular courses in our schools and we continue to strive to meet the ever- increasing demand for more courses, computers and time for students to sit with the keyboard.

Computer literacy, as well as other technical skills, allows girls in Afghanistan to go on to a university and/or to find employment easier in the future.

16-year-old, Abida, has been taking lessons at one of our computer centers for about five months, and has expressed what a great opportunity taking computer lessons was. “Learning computers solved a lot of my problems and makes me feel proud for knowing computers as a modern technology.”

After graduating from high school, Abida plans to apply to medical school. In order get accepted into medical school, Abida would need to take the Kankor exam. Honing skills in computer literacy will help Abida and many other girls in Afghanistan pass certain exams for them to get accepted into public universities.

Abida joins over 850 students who have already graduated from our three centers in Northern Afghanistan. As a computer literate student, her options are now modestly improved for her path forward.

Donor support in purchasing new computers for our centers allows us to continue to support girls in Afghanistan. Your donation helped provide girls in Afghanistan with computers that they need in order to become more educated, empowered, and inspired individuals. Thank you.
