Leveraging technology and education to support computing needs in communities around the globe.
Nerds Abroad is a not-for-profit organization (Federal Tax ID is #47-4393638) founded in 2014 to transform technology acumen and literacy around the globe through world-class experiential educational models. Our team has nearly a decade of combined experience in non-profit operations, social business, IT management, and programming and development in several hardware and software domains. Together, we are dedicated to partner with organizations around the globe to serve transitional youth and create economic opportunity in underrepresented communities globally. The organization was founded by our President CEO, Stephen Hodges, when he noticed a lack of technological "know-how" in missions and NGOs around the world. After going on several trips to repair, maintain, and consult with organizations, he sought to find a long-term solution to technology support abroad. Thus creating, Nerds Abroad.
