Afghan Girls Code

Armed with her Drew education and a passion for computer coding, Bahara had the idea to develop a coding program which she could teach to girls in Afghanistan, helping them develop real-world skills. With dogged determination, guidance from AGFAF director Bill Godfrey, software donations from Black Rocket, and financial support from Drew's Center on Religion, Culture and Conflict, her vision became reality when, in the summer of 2018, she taught a class of 20 young Afghan women how to code. The program was so successful that Bahara, along with other AGFAF scholars have continued to develop and refine the curriculum, teaching a second session during the summer of 2019. Plans are being developed for Afghan Girls Code to become a permanent offering through the AGFAF libraries.
