Challenge

Investments in education for Afghan girls are increasing their literacy, but they need more marketable skills. Without such skills, many must marry and start raising children at very young ages. One skill that is very marketable in Afghanistan, but not available in the secondary schools attended by most girls, is computer coding.

Solution

In 2018, Sahar's coding project will teach coding to 20 girls from Sahar-supported public secondary schools in Afghanistan. These girls have already received basic computer literacy training in Sahar-funded computer centers. Training them in coding is the next step. The funding goal for this microproject, $250, is enough to train one girl. A tiny amount when compare to the enormous difference it will make in her life.

Long-Term Impact

Our long-term goal is to improve the quality of public education for Afghan girls. We want every girl attending the public schools we support to finish secondary school with marketable skills.
