Impacting lives by teaching how to code

Over 65.3 million refugees in the world. Millions of vacant IT jobs due to digitalization. Two problems, one solution:

A coding academy for refugees.


Get Involved

Powercoders is a coding academy for refugees. We believe that, in the 21st century, coding skills will help you to start a new life wherever you are forced to go.

We offer a 3-month coding boot camp, followed by an internship. The ultimate goal of Powercoders is the permanent placement of trained refugees in IT companies and IT departments.


A vacant IT job can be filled with a displaced person.
