Innovate For Refugees 2019: Startups Track - Finalist

Description

Re:Coded is a social impact organization integrating conflict affected youth into the labour market and taking on the global digital skills gap. Through our intensive programs, we train conflict affected youth in MENA for successful careers in the region’s rapidly growing technology sector as software developers and help them become the next generation of tech leaders. At least 40% of our students are also female, helping to bridge the digital gender divide in technology. In addition to providing training and career support through our 5 month fellowship program, Re:Coded’s innovative operating model includes a digital agency - Re:Coded Labs. Our agency is staffed by graduates from our programs and 50% of the profits generated through Re:Coded Labs is reinvested back into our education programs, to fuel our mission and growth. By connecting talent with opportunity, Re:Coded empowers graduates to bring change to their families, tech companies, and communities across the MENA region.
