Code to Inspire is a non-profit organization committed to teaching female students in Afghanistan on coding. Recently, it was reported that CTI has collaborated with ‘The Bounties Network’, an outsourcing platform, which provides students Ethereum [ETH] in exchange for fixing vulnerabilities for businesses, or projects postings.
They aim to achieve women’s economic and social advancement in Afghanistan’s growing technology industry. The website reads:
“We are going to empower girls online without being worried of physical and geographical distances.”
It further states:
“As role models for other young Afghan women, CTI graduates demonstrate that women are capable of adding value to their communities far beyond simple housework.”
CTI had previously worked on blockchain in May 2018. They worked for Coinone, a Korean cryptocurrency exchange for their donation project ‘Coinone Give’. For this, they worked on a promo for their users where donations could be made by using the blockchain.
This partnership [CTI-Bounties Network] was first labored in May when these women were set up with MetaMask, a platform that allows running Ethereum dApps on the browser without running a full Ethereum node, accounts and software wallets. They started earning between $10 and $80 per bounty, depending on the project they completed, as said by Fereshteh Forough, the Founder of CTI.
Simona Pop, Head of Community at Bounties Network, who is closely involved in this project tweeted:
“I am so proud of this, thank you @f_forough and the whole @CodeToInspire team for taking the journey with us! #worldonbounties#Ethereum#blockchain.”
The Bounties Network doesn’t always offer just technical related assignment. They have translation jobs and other projects as well, and with this, the girls might have an opportunity to better engage with the Ethereum community as they learn to code.
