About Re:Coded

Technology is changing the way the world responds to crisis - and Re:Coded is at the center of it all. We are a fast-growing humanitarian innovation startup that is preparing refugees and vulnerable youth in conflict affected areas with fundamental coding skills and professional experience that together create access to careers in technology. 

Re:Coded runs a signature coding bootcamp for refugees, displaced youth and local community members - the first of its kind in Iraq and Turkey. We provide technical training to extraordinary human beings who would not otherwise have access to first-rate materials, mentorships, and job opportunities. We believe in the strength of diversity, the beauty of code, and the power of education. We believe that learning is a lifelong pursuit, the doors of which should be closed to no one.
