About Code to Inspire

Code to Inspire empowers young women in developing countries to drive economic and social progress by teaching them how to code, find programming jobs and launch technology ventures. Code to Inspire (CTI) was established in 2015 starting in Afghanistan as the first coding school for young women by Computer Science Professor and former refugee Fereshteh Forough. Supported by organizations and individuals committed to the advancement of women in technology, the nonprofit training program has taught 150 young women how to code, build mobile apps and games. Over 70% of graduates have found work, earning above-average wages in their country.

A Message From their Founder Fereshteh

Sometimes you don’t have the available resources to succeed but because I was born as a refugee, I learned to be scrappy and resourceful. I learned to make the best out of everything and it has gotten me to where I am today. I believe great things can start with empty hands. Knowledge is power and technology is the tool for this empowerment. That’s why I chose become a citizen of the world without considering geographical boundaries.As Rumi said: “Where there is ruin, there is hope for great treasure.”

From the ruins of a shattered nation and the shattered lives of refugees can come treasure, if we know where to find it.
