Code to Inspire, a coding school in Afghanistan, provides digital skills training and fast-tracks girls into employment.
In a country where many barriers to education still exist for girls, these schools are also sources of empowerment and confidence.
The school teaches mobile app and web development, gaming, full-stack development, and graphic design. The programme is completely free.
The combination of the global digital transformation and Afghanistan's emergence from war is a chance for youth to drive social change. Founder and CEO Fereshteh Forough says that Afghan youth are “entrepreneurial, enthusiastic, and anti-war.”
