Afghan Robotic Team
Part of the mission of Digital Citizen Fund is to reach women in the conservative nations of the world with access to technology and education. In an effort to reach this goal, in January of 2017 we started providing a STEM program with a group of 7 students. The original group has grown to 12 members. These young women are learning and implementing their talents and skills in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. They are the first steps toward bringing the Afghan culture toward a bright future as a force in the STEM conversations of the world.
Our robotics team that competed in Washington D.C and Estonia was one example of the goals we can achieve when we work together to train women and encourage them in their dreams. Men vastly outnumber women in STEM jobs all over the world. The young women in our programs have the potential to change these odds.
