Global Code is a charitable startup based in the UK.

Every year, we take the world’s best programmers, teachers and volunteers to universities in West Africa and beyond.

Our aim is to bring professional, practical Software Enginering skills to where they can do the most good. We find great students that are already learning to code and boost their knowledge with a rich, focussed programme of labs, group work and driven self-learning.

Throughout our programme we teach through example: we use git for all our project work; we discuss diversity and open-source software; we show the fun and beauty in our craft. We get our hands dirty. We solve problems with code.

Find out about our first summer programme, held at Koforidua Technical University in Summer 2017.
