By Stephen Perlman - Consultant, Help the Afghan Children
Each year, HTAC gives thousands of Afghan high school students the opportunity to learn a skill that will change their lives forever - computer education - and each year, Afghan girls and boys demonstrate their passion and commitment in gaining computer skills that help them either obtain a much-needed job, advance their education, or improve the lives of their families.
In 2012, 6,700 students from various HTAC-supported schools in Afghanistan completed our computer education program, and over 98% of them successfully passed their final computer exams and evaluations! This measure of success is all the more remarkable considering the fact that the great majority of these students had never seen a computer before enrolling in the class. Before being given a passing grade, students must demonstrate their knowledge and technical skills in Microsoft Windows, Word, Excel (and for 12th graders) Power Point. For those schools with internet capability, students learn how to navigate the internet including accessing information to complete school assignments.
By supporting this program, you are making a true difference in the life and future of an Afghan girl or boy.
