Train 60 girls in computer coding in Afghanistan

With your support and that of institiutional funders, our Afghan programme has supported a total of 699 young women this term, who have participated in courses in English, computer technology and coding.

We have provided technical orientation training to 16 teachers, which has supported them in delivering the course effectively. Training included techniques such as lesson planning, attendance monitoring, monthly reports, data capture.

After this training, Womanity’s team undertook monitoring visits observe teacher-student interaction, teaching methodologies and students’ levels of understanding. Since the beginning of May we have carried out 19 such visits to coding classes and 14 for ICT. We then met with the teachers to discuss what is working well and where things could be improved to support better learning outcomes.

The feedback from students has been extremely positive – for example, Marina, an ICT student commented:

“Participating in ICT classes is the best opportunity in my life. Even before this class I couldn't turn on the computer, now I can learn new things in computer and hope to learn more. Thanks Womanity for creating this opportunity for Afghan girls for us.”

We are committed to ensuring that young Afghan women like Marina get the best quality education possible, so they can fulfil their potential as adults. The importance of this for poorer families is highlighted by this mother:

“I am a widow and […] do not have economic ability to pay fee for my daughter to go in private courses and learn English. This is a great opportunity for the poor families like me and their daughters, as now they are studying English in a very safe environment. Thank you to Womanity Foundation and from the respected staff and trainers, as you support our daughters’ education.”

On behalf of all the students, their families and our team in Afghanistan, thank you for choosing to support this important work. We will keep you updated with our progress.
