About Code to Inspire:

Code to Inspire (CTI) uses technology education and outreach to provide Afghan women with leverage in their fight for social, political, and economic equality. We build skills and infrastructure for women to compete in the global tech market, empowering them financially and socially. As role models for other younger Afghan women, CTI graduates demonstrate that women are capable of adding value to their communities far beyond simple housework.

Code to Inspire is a nonprofit committed to educating Afghan female students by improving their technical literacy and teaching them how to code so that they can find future employment as freelancers. Ideally, Code to Inspire will serve as a launching pad for Afghan females to get involved in entrepreneurship and technological innovation.

Help us build Afghanistan 2.0.

In January 2015, former Afghan refugee Fereshteh Forough founded the first coding school for girls in Herat, Afghanistan. Code to Inspire (CTI), the school is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in New York City. To date, 350 students received free technical education. CTI offers classes in Web Development, Game Development, Mobile Application Development, and Graphic Design. CTI seeks to address the perennial economic, cultural, and patriarchal challenges that women in Afghanistan face by providing a free after-school program in a safe environment for female students. CTI is narrowing the gender gap in education participation, social empowerment, and economic growth in Afghanistan. Become a part of our team to rebuild Afghanistan 2.0 with #AfghanGirlsCode
