50 Afghan Women in Tech

Aseel declares the current state of Education in Afghanistan as a crisis and is responding to it. Our first campaign is focused on fully remote high-level work for Afghan women. We will be launching further calls to support other areas in support of women and women's education in Afghanistan. This is an effort that everyone can take part in. It's all of us in support of Afghan women.

About the Program

50 Afghan Women in Tech will identify and support 50 women from Afghanistan to become future technology leaders. The program will enable the fellows to work directly with technology companies that are actively supporting Afghanistan.

The program works as a one-year fellowship that provides fully-remote work opportunities for Afghan women. The package includes a monthly allowance, an internet fee, a workstation, and other requirements that will enable the fellow to work full-time remotely with the organizing partners.

Why Support Afghan Women?

Afghanistan is going through an employment crisis. Hundreds of thousands of jobs have been lost since the Taliban takeover last August, with women, particularly hard hit. The U.N.’s International Labor Organization estimates in the last 20 years, Afghan women have had an active role in the global technology sector. This Program aims to provide the opportunity for more women from Afghanistan at this critical time to secure the gains and further build up to create future leaders in the technology sector who are Afghan Women.

Who can apply?

All women from Afghanistan can apply from anywhere in the world; preference is given to those that can, within a short timeframe, lead a significant technology area and/or cause mass impact for other Afghan women through technology.
