It’s our goal to teach 1,000 Congolese Women how to code
SheCodes will teach 1,000 Congolese Women to code for free through the SheCodes Foundation.
Many barriers exist that prevent Congolese women from achieving a full formal education. While primary-level education has improved in recent years, almost 40% of all girls do not attend secondary school. The ratio is even worse in further education. Only 10% of all women in the Congo reach this level of education. Many women are pressured into marrying at a young age, starting a family and committing to domestic work and manual labour with little chance of building a professional career on a regular salary.
The SheCodes Foundation offers free coding classes to women in the Congo, so that they can access and develop key skills that will enable them to find better-paid work and build a professional career. Apply today to get started.
If you are a Congolese women residing in Congo, you can apply to learn how to code with SheCodes Workshops free of cost through the SheCodes Foundation. After you complete an application, the team will review it as soon as possible.

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.
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.
The SheCodes Foundation is financed by SheCodes workshops.
Will I have to pay anything to join?
No, you won’t have to pay anything! SheCodes Foundation applicants who are accepted to join the workshops will gain access to all of the workshops for free.
