Computing Skills Empower Women

By Elizabeth Appleyard | Program Officer

Computing is a modern skill that people need no matter where they live in the world. Women and girls in Afghanistan are interested in learning computing to aid them in school work or to find work.  Many AIL Learning Centers offer computing classes and in Herat there are 495 computer students (241 female) and in the Kabul area 314 students.  There are also special English and Computing combined classes and 88 of the Kabul students are enrolled in this type of fast track class.

Nadia is a Computer class student at a center in Herat. She said, “I have been in computer class for 5 months and I learned lots of new things and I am now a fully skilled computer programmer. Computer skills are extremely important and everyone needs to have them.  I am so proud of myself, that I learned this skill and can work for my countrymen.  Recently, I got a part- time job at a foundation for women. There I exchange emails and coordinate meetings for the board of directors. By earning money from my new job, I can buy whatever I need to have. I am also able to teach computer skills to my children, and don’t need to pay anyone else to do it. I really do love computers. Through the class I have also learned to communicate with my friends and promote my skills. Whenever a person can earn money she can live independently and support her family.” 

Thank you for your support for Afghan women as they study and work to gain modern, marketable skills and improve their lives.

 

AIL is working towards: SDG Goal 4
