Veteran-founded organisation WithYouWithMe is allocating $10 million dollars of free digital skills training to Afghan refugees following the fall of Kabul.

"Over 60% of our employees have served or are family members of those who served. We are committed to the upskilling of 2,000 Afghan refugees by placing individuals into high-demand digital pathways, including data analysis, software development and coding," said WithYouWithMe co-founder and CEO Tom Moore.

Moore was one of the 39,000 Australian troops deployed to Afghanistan since 2001.

"I've watched the recent events unfold in Afghanistan and it's been heart-breaking to see on a deeply personal level. Many of our staff are veterans and we firmly believe that the good folks who risked everything to help us deserve our support."

The initiative is being led by WithYouWithMe robotic process automation developer Ryan Bain, a former infantryman in the Canadian Armed Forces who spent 18 months embedded with the Afghan Army.

"We're dedicated to training Afghan refugees, translators and their families because it's the right thing to do. Everyone is focused on just getting them out," said Ryan.

"For those that have been forced to flee, we want to ensure they have a second chance to rebuild a new life."

Veterans and Afghan refugees can sign up here.

WithYouWithMe's digital skills training is designed for individuals with no tech experience or skills.

Courses on cybersecurity, data analysis, software development, digital project management and automation are offered. Each is valued at $5,000, and additional places may be offered beyond the initial 2.000.

WithYouWithMe also provides certified training in Microsoft, Pega, Salesforce, SAP, AWS and more.

The organisation also helps place successful graduates into entry-level tech jobs where they can work from home or in an appropriate office, depending on their needs.

WithYouWithMe has offices in Australia, Canada, USA and the UK.
