Powering Lebanon’s next generation with tech skills

“CodeBrave is really making a difference”

(Joseph, 18)

We are a tech education charity. We combine STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) with educational psychology-based teaching techniques. Our students are 12-18 year olds from disadvantaged areas in Lebanon. We are funded by our social enterprise and our donors.

Our Story

In 2018, CodeBrave’s co-founders, Clem and Steven, were volunteering at a shelter for homeless youth in Lebanon. Many of these young people ended up back on the streets when they left the shelter, becoming trapped in a cycle of poverty and exploitation.

When one of the boys asked to learn coding, it sparked an idea. Steven and Clem realised that tech education could give these young people the skills, confidence, and opportunities to access jobs of the future. They set up coding and robotics classes in the shelter – and the students loved it!

CodeBrave now works to create lasting social change through tech education across Lebanon, with more than 400 children joining the programme so far.

CodeBrave's 2021 Impact Report

We believe in the potential of every child.

We train former street youth and refugees for jobs of the future based on skills that are in-demand allowing them to take advantage of the growing Middle East tech sector and opening up an international online job market.

Many of our students come from traumatic backgrounds of conflict, abuse or poverty. We are leading thinking on integrating STEM education with trauma psychology.
