This month Language Beyond Borders has started a pilot with Gaza Sky Geeks (GSG) of Mercy Corps.
We’re incredibly proud to be working as part of such an incredible project! Gaza Sky Geeks is a project which aims to enable Palestinians to earn incomes online and in the tech sector by empowering them through coding and online freelancing bootcamps.
Students in Gaza and the West Bank graduate from the GSG Code Academy as full stack developers. The ultimate aim is to develop Palestine into a globally competetive tech eco-system, transforming Palestinians’ fortunes, and futures. English as the international language is vital for them and that’s where LBB comes in.
Language Beyond Borders has taken on 16 graduates of the GSG Code Academy programme with the objective of improving their English level in order to increase their chances of finding work with international employers. The pilot is being funded by the Facebook Community Leadership Programme.
