It’s our goal to teach 1,000 Colombian Women how to code

SheCodes will teach 1,000 Colombian Women to code for free through the SheCodes Foundation.

Colombia has made great strides in gender equality in childhood education. Female enrollment in both primary and secondary has increased greatly over the past few decades. However, women are still very underrepresented in high-paying STEM industries. Only 17% of employees in the IT sector are women. More women are unemployed or work in low-paying and informal industries than men due to barriers in the industry.

To help Colombian women break into the tech industry, the SheCodes Foundation is excited to offer coding classes at no additional cost.

What Alumni think of SheCodes

5/5 - Highly recommended

The course is intuitive and very detailed; The proposed methodology greatly facilitates learning. If you are afraid to start, I will tell you do not wait any longer, it is a great opportunity to start in the world of programming

5/5 - Highly recommended

In this course I have learned a lot in the short time I have been. I like the classes with the instructor Matt, he is a good teacher and makes everything easy to understand. The methodology in which after most of the lessons a challenge is carried out and then the solution is explained is striking since it allows reinforcing the topics seen. The first project was challenging and I enjoyed doing it, I like the freedom that was given to do it since it allows us to challenge ourselves and let our imagination run wild. It is also fun to work with the tools that SheCodes offers, it makes the job easier.I am excited to continue coding and learning!

Great learning 🤩! You actually go from knowing nothing to understand basic concepts in programming.

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 don’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,

I’m Matt, CEO at SheCodes.

I’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. I’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, we’re making an impact.
