A trip to Berlin and Two Graduations in Iraq

A trip to Berlin and Two Graduations in Iraq

In October, we wrapped up the last two coding bootcamps of 2018, graduating 34 young men and women in Erbil, Iraq. It has been an incredible year for our team in Iraq, who spearheaded our country growth with 5 new programs, including a tech startup pre-accelerator and a freelancing academy.

The celebrations continue!

Last week marked another momentous occasion for us, the graduation of our Urfa cohort.

After six months of hardwork and dedication, a group of 30 students, a mix of Syrian refugees and Turkish youth, graduated the Re:Coded Android Bootcamp, with the ability to call themselves developers. And this, just like our Erbil graduation, wouldn’t have been possible without the continuous support from people like you.

There are over 230,000 Syrian refugees living in Iraq alongside 3.5 million internally displaced Iraqis. They are, on average, expected to spend the next 17 years uprooted and in need of assistance. To put that into perspective, it would be like if everyone in Manhattan, the Bronx, Staten Island and Boston were unable to return home until 2034.
