UPDATED – Afghan Girls Robotics Team to ATD


The response has been absolutely amazing, and everyone has been overwhelmed with the generosity of the community. We’ve raised over $5,000 so far, but are not yet at the goal of  $15,000. If you can help in any way, it would be very appreciated and we thank you for your support of this team and initiative. Thank you! – Keith, Roya, and the team at Agile Testing Days

The Afghan tech revolution is being led by Roya Mahboob and her Digital Citizen Fund, and this year she helped an all-girl robotics team from Herat compete in the First Global Challenge . The team had an incredible experience in Washington D.C. at the competition, and now the incredible people at Agile Testing Days have agreed to let the team present their project, participate in the conference, and network with technologist from all over the world.

So now we need your help!

We are raising the funds to send and host the team and coaches in Potsdam, Germany for the conference. As well, any additional funds will be donated to education fund of Team Afghanistan Captain, Fatemah, whose father recently passed away in an attack in Herat. This is a great opportunity to directly impact an important program, diversity in technology, and send a message of love and support to the global technology community.

Donations are being accepted through GoFundMe HERE. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
