Is Afghanistan’s Robotics Team Rescued?

Did you know? Ten girls from Afghanistan’s girls robotics team are rescued out of Afghanistan. “Several members of the women Afghan robotics team have safely arrived in Doha, Qatar, from Kabul, Afghanistan,” a press release from the Digital Citizen Fund and Qatar Ministry of Foreign Affairs said of the Afghan Girls Robotic Team.

The team, which consists of a gaggle of women ages 16-18 who have overcome hardship to pursue their love of engineering and robotics in Afghanistan, safely arrived in Doha, Qatar, days after Kabul fell to the Taliban.

“The Digital Citizen Fund (DCF), the team’s parent organization, is deeply grateful to the govt of Qatar for his or her outstanding support, including not only expediting the visa process but sending a plane after outbound flights from Afghanistan were repeatedly canceled,” the DCF said during a statement.
