SheCodes Foundation Mission

Women currently hold 25% of coding jobs and earn 30% less money than men. In most developing countries, more than 65% of women don't have bank accounts and cannot afford to invest in their education. Female refugees also donโ€™t have many opportunities to invest in their education and improve their career horizon - they often work in unskilled, undervalued, and low-paid informal sectors.

SheCodes is here to help provide women in developing countries and women who are refugees with the opportunity to learn how to code for free. SheCodes offers a solid introduction to product development, product design and product management.

Hi everyone,

Iโ€™m Matt, CEO at SheCodes.

Iโ€™m excited to present this project we've been thinking about since starting SheCodes.

The aim is to offer SheCodes workshops at no cost to women living in select developing countries who are facing serious financial and educational challenges, along with women who are refugees.

When I started SheCodes, it was a non-profit. During our past onsite workshops, I always mentioned that my ultimate goal for SheCodes was to open a school providing free education. Iโ€™m happy to turn this initial idea into a reality.

This is the beginning of something that will hopefully have an impact on many women.

The Foundation will be financed entirely by SheCodes Workshops, 10% of profits will be used to offer support to more women around the world. If you want to contribute, feel free to purchase SheCodes Workshops for yourself, friends, or family members.

SheCodes will remain paid, yet affordable in developed countries so we can keep offering quality training while expanding globally.

Thanks so much for being part of SheCodes. Together, weโ€™re making an impact.

A big plus for the challenges as you can easily put in practice all that you have learned during each lesson. I had lots of fun doing this course, and I encourage everyone to give it a try!โ€

Jรบlia Trill, SheCodes Alumni

โ€œI wanted to learn coding but I always thought it was complicated to learn. Thatโ€™s not true at all! Matt makes it so easy to understand, and the practical exercises give you time to try and learn at your own pace. Thereโ€™s a great team and an amazing community that can help you whenever you feel stuck with the coding as well, and I think that keeps you motivated ๐Ÿ’—. This was my โ€œsummer challengeโ€, to learn something new. Now Iโ€™m able to code my own projects using HTML, CSS, and JS !!โ€
