Join Sahar for dinner on October 27th to help us raise funds to teach computer and coding skills to Afghan girls. Sahar partners with Afghanistan’s Ministry of Education and locally-based organizations to empower Afghan women through education. We currently educate more than 20,000 girls in 13 schools throughout Afghanistan and 1,500 girls in our computer centers. With your help, we hope to launch a pilot coding project next year. A strong foundation in basic digital literacy is essential to provide economic independence and personal and social advancement for women. Join Sahar in building peace and stability in Afghanistan through inclusive economic opportunity.
