Coding for Kids
Educating impoverished Gifted children of India to be leaders in the digital age
We provide free cutting-edge technology training that sets our students apart from others. This shift enables them to secure well-paying jobs, to support their families and sponsor a new poor child in our school, thus breaking the cycle of poverty.
Over the last year, thanks to generous donations of people like you, we have installed 126 state-of-the-art PCs in our 4 Titan Labs. We now have the infrastructure to deliver real and tangible high-tech skills to our students.
The job market has changed significantly over the last decade. Top employers like Apple, IBM, and Google are placing more emphasis on what you know, rather than how you learned it. This is especially true for vocations like coding and programming, which can be learned online and don’t require a 4-year college degree.
According to a 2016 report published by Burning Glass, a job market analytics firm, learning to code is one of the best skills you can acquire to secure a well-paying career. The report states:
- Coding Jobs Pay More: In the USA, jobs requiring coding skills pay $22,000 per year more than jobs that don’t. Half of the jobs that pay more than $57,000 a year, require coding skills from job applicants.
- Coding Jobs are in High-Demand: Coding jobs are growing faster than the job market, and are especially useful to Engineers, Scientists, Artists & Designers, Data Analysts, and Information Technology Workers.
