Our work on Code.X started in 2015 and we registered as a non-political, non-religious 501c3 nonprofit in 2019. In the last 8 years, Code.X has taught thousands of students computer science and human-centered design over 6,000+ live classroom hours in places like Israel/Palestine, Albania, Egypt, and Ukraine, with 100+ Silicon Valley volunteer instructors.
Our flagship programs are considered wildly successful as the first tech-focused programs in Albania and Palestine (press from Friends of UNFPA, ABC News Albania, Palestine Ministry of Education). The programs achieved a highly competitive 2% acceptance rate. Our graduates have gone on to attend top universities in the world, including Stanford, MIT, Harvard and Brown, on scholarships totaling $3M+.
