It’s all of us in support of Afghan women.
About the Program
This program primarily focuses on providing remote employment and leadership development opportunities for 50 talented Afghan women globally and in Afghanistan. The 50 women in tech program will enable these women utilize their technical skills and abilities to work remotely with different private, NGOs and technology companies. The program is a full-year remote IT fellowship for Afghan. Each woman will receive a stipend and IT equipment. To fund this initiative, we have launched a grand challenge allowing donors from all around the world to participate in supporting these women.
The program's first two months are an extensive learning opportunity. in the later nine months, the fellow will be working with one of the partners of this grand challenge as a full-time team member. In the final month, team members present their work to the IT firm they’ve been a fellow with and work with them with the goal of being offered a permanent and paid position.
Successful applicants will be given a full-time paid remote employee for this program. All necessary equipment in order to support these women to work with partner organizations, including Aseel, Code to Inspire, Women for Afghan Women, Ehtesab, RapidIteration will be provided to them.
Our partners hosting the fellow are contributing by promoting this program through social media and other mediums to ensure that talented Afghan women are found for this program. Our partners are committed to taking an active part in the hiring of successful candidates in their respected organizations based on their organization’s requirement and capacity at the completion of the fellowship. The program will be run by representatives of each partner organization and will be actively involvement in each fellow’s progress in order to achieve the program’s mission.
Every fellow will be assigned to a technical workstream area to work with partner organizations.
Representatives of all the partner organizations will manage the Program. All partners will have full access to all the financial and operational aspects of the Program. The management team will also enable full public reporting through the grand challenge.
The Program is going to be funded by people globally. We have launched a grand challenge for this program to accept support from the broader public.
