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.

SheCodes is here to help provide women in developing countries 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.

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.

Testimonials

What Alumni think of SheCodes

5/5 - Highly recommended

SheCodes has been a great experience which I thoroughly enjoyed. The lessons were well explained by Matt and he made coding fun to learn. A world of possibilities has been open up to me after completing this workshop and I would definitely continue on this learning journey

5/5 - Highly recommended

When I began my coding journey, I didn't have a path to follow but with SheCodes, that path was defined. A path that is easy for anyone to follow and learn. I always felt a sense of fulfillment upon the completion of my homework as someone who had no prior coding knowledge. Two months into the workshop, I can build projects with HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Skills I never thought I'd have. I am grateful to the SheCodes Foundation for the opportunity.

5/5 - Highly recommended

It was one of the best classes I have ever had. The support group is amazing, the way Matt is teaching is amazing, Actually his way of teaching, and how he codes and think in the middle of the work encourage me not to fear of making mistakes, and not to give up. Thank you for this experience and for your support.

โ€œWithouth any doubt, I totally recommend this workshop to everyone! The modules are very well designed and segmented to allow you a smoothly progress. Matt is not only a highly experienced coder, but an excellent teacher that makes complex concepts extremely easy to understand and execute. I loved every challenge even though sometimes I was stuck for a couple of hours trying to figure out how to fix or do something. It is just part of the process, and I appreciate the tips and resources shared with us. I am looking forward to continue my path to the next workshop with SheCodes.โ€

โ€œI cannot emphasize enough how awesome this workshop was; I was so afraid of JS due to being unsuccessful in learning it before but, Matt is an incredible instructor, the way he explains everything throughout the workshop is incredible and his team supporting us over Slack are equally amazing. Thank you so much; this has been by far the best experience and I leave confident I will succeed as a web developer thanks to the tools you've given me. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’œโ€
