Petition: Support Afghanistan first all-girl Robotic team receive US visa to compete

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


Please join us to encourage State Department to support and grant visa to the 6 extraordinarily brave all-girl robotic team from Afghanistan, so they can compete in the inaugural FIRST Global Challenge in Washington DC.

The all-girl team from Afghanistan risked a 500 mile trek cross-country to the American embassy in Kabul. Despite the recent violence, the teenagers braved the trip to the country's capital not once, but twice, hoping a second round of interviews might help secure their 7-day visas after the team was rejected on its first try. But they were denied visa.

We support STEM and girls in technology and would like you to join us in this petition! Please sign and share!

Thank you,

Armin and Kian Nowrouzi
