Description

We are a non-profit organisation supporting refugees and disadvantaged individuals with the dream of becoming developers. In their journey of interrupted lives, unfinished studies and integration challenges, many of these individuals yearn to update their tech skills, but lack learning opportunities. We want to change this. In 2016 we launched the first cohort of our 8-month web development programme, coached by a group of professional developers.
