Coding class in Khabul
“I always wanted to know how to code. There were times when I was watching my cousin, who had done his BSC in computer sciences, making a website for a client. When I asked him to teach me, he made fun of me by saying girls can't code. At that time, I promise myself that one day I’ll learn how to code, and I did. It is all because of Womanity and my lovely teacher”
The Womanity team thanks you for your support on the Girls Can Code project. Thanks to you your contribution we have:
- Continued and ended another year of high-quality training for approximate 438 high school girls in Kabul (212 studying English, 211 ICT and 150 Coding) [data up to November 2019];
- Introduced women role model working in the Tech Sector in Afghanistan and internationally;
- Organized 13 internships for former GCC students in various sectors such as Web Design, Finance, IT, Marketing or Administration;
- Provided scholarships to 6 motivated GCC alumnae now students in a Computer Science university faculty.
Girls Can Code builds the skills and confidence for young Afghan women to enter the labor force:
“In the future, I want to have my own hospital or clinic so I can help people. Through the skills obtained through GCC, I can connect to hospitals around the globe. Using computers and the internet, I can conduct research on different diseases.” Coding student
“Participating in ICT classes is the great opportunity in my life. Before this class I couldn't turn on the computer, now I can learn new things on computer related subjects and hope to learn more, thanks Womanity for creating this opportunity for Afghan girls.” ICT student
On behalf of the Womanity team we thank you for supporting young Afghan women to accomplish their potential to study and work the growing IT sector.
