What We Do | Our Programs


Danesh powered by MAP+InspireTech is a STEM Education program for refugee girls from the Middle East grades 3-12 in Northern California. Launching in the Summer of 2022, Danesh creates a space for learning science/tech that infuses role-modeling, fun, creativity, encouragement, and kindness. As a result, the girls will gain competency and confidence, opening a path for their future growth and opportunities.

The Danesh program provides insight into the field of study and jobs in STEM. Sparking the girls’ interest in science, engineering, and technology will allow access to better paying jobs, and greater economic opportunities for them, their families, and communities. Girls who complete the workshops will receive a Certification of Achievement in STEM.

the age and abilities of each girl.)
