"Hosted by the U.S. State Department and Legacy International, the young girls—who range between 15 to 17 years of age and hail from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, the Palestinian Territories, Yemen, and Tunisia—are currently working side by side with American teens and leaders in the tech industry at the fourth annual TechGirls exchange program in Washington, D.C., and at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia."
