A group of young Afghan women are developing a mobile application to attract foreign tourists to Afghanistan

Fereshteh Forough
Founder and CEO of Code to Inspire
The young women are students at the coding school in Herat called Code to Inspire (CTI) which is founded and managed by Fereshteh Forough.

“The application is more about showing a good image of Afghanistan that the media, unfortunately, doesn’t show,” said Fereshteh Forough. Subscribers to the application will be able to take a quiz about Afghanistan, and based on their selections, will get a list of suggested places to visit and food to try.

Code To Inspire opened Afghanistan's first female-only coding school in Herat in 2015 and will expand to Kabul and Mazar-e Sharif. Code to Inspire provides a safe and secure place where students can learn, express themselves, and enjoy being in an educational environment. The program is free of charge to students. Besides providing technical and professional development, Code To Inspire teaches students how to become strong, confident leaders and advocates for change.
