Powering Lebanon’s next generation with tech skills
“CodeBrave is really making a difference”
CodeBrave is a non-profit working to give young people in Lebanon the tools to lift themselves out of poverty. They do this using the most powerful skills available: coding, robotics and AI. All our teachers are trained in educational psychology. We are funded by our social enterprise and our donors.
Our impact so far.
In 2018, Khalil, a 15-year-old living at a homeless shelter, asked the volunteers there to teach him coding. Other kids from the shelter usually ended up back on the streets when they left the cycle and got trapped in a cycle of poverty and exploitation. Khalil wanted a different life.
The volunteers responded by setting up coding and robotics classes, where Khalil and others thrived. They built self-driving car robots, coded Ghostbusters video games, and programmed lights to mirror their silhouettes, all while learning problem-solving, critical thinking, digital resourcefulness, and creativity.
STEM education goes beyond coding; it re-engages young minds like Khalil, building confidence and problem-solving abilities using technology. The most significant impact was on Khalil’s sense of agency. “Other kids in the shelter spent all this time and energy trying to fix the past. Me, I said I don’t want to fix anything. You can’t fix it. It’s broken. But I can make my future.”
