Over 1 million refugees reached the shores of Europe in 2015 alone. We are here to challenge that this is a problem, we believe it is animmense opportunity to solve the talent shortage in the tech industry - the European Union faces a shortage of 900 000 IT specialists by 2020.
In order to continue running the program in 2017 we need YOU. Let's work together to create a model for social innovation in our community and in the world.
Next to committing our full time there are also hard costs involved in making this a sustainable project. We have lots of ground to make up to bring diverse talents into tech and provide equal opportunity.
All the funds raised in this campaign will go to cover the education activities of our students for the first class in 2017. This means you will enable the graduation of around 20 more students! We do not talk about integration, we make it happen!
Some of the costs we will occur in order to run this class:
- Workshop supplies
- Prints & T-Shirts
- Graduation event
- Teambuilding activities
- Filming equipment
- Accounting, reporting and legal services
