Today marks World Teachers Day and Code to Inspire wants to give a shout out to all teachers around the world!
Was there a teacher who left a lasting impact on you? Perhaps you are an educator yourself! What would a world without solid teachers look like! We cannot even imagine.
We at Code to Inspire are grateful for our team of mentors who go above and beyond in providing instruction and empowering our female students. You can learn more about our mentors here: http://codetoinspire.org/team/
Behind every good teacher is not just head knowledge or subject matter expertise but a passion to make a difference in the lives of their students and empower their students to do the same.
As our mentor, Aalem says, “With the hope to break down the barriers that stand between women and technology in Afghanistan, we put our efforts to inspire afghan girls to code and to prove that there should be no gender gap in the field of technology.”
Our Founder and CEO, Fereshteh Forough, is a former teacher we are honoring today! In fact, today Fereshteh received the Citris Athena Award!
This #WorldTeacherDay we are thankful for donors who have helped us get to the point of soon graduating our first group of students through providing funding for our exceptional mentors!
