Are you ready to work hard to change your future? Do you have a passion for learning new skills that may improve your and your family's economic situation? Would you like to create your own website and learn the basics of entrepreneurship? Do you dream of creating your own business or work as a freelancer according to your own time?
CODE+ is an initiative that enables Jordanian women with limited economic opportunities to acquire the technical, entrepreneurial, soft skills, as well as the self-confidence needed to establish their own business opportunities.
Our focus is on helping those educated but unemployed women outside of the capital city of Amman enhance their economic livelihood, be it by preparing them for freelance work, establishing their own business, or even generate economic growth within their wider community. Unlike traditional bootcamps, our course focuses on teaching skills (such as how to build a website) that are easy to learn and can quickly help women become entrepreneurs.
CODE+ was established in 2019 with CTEK, a nonprofit organization, based in the United States, that seeks to break down barriers to entrepreneurship worldwide. Our first pilot took place in the Sultanate of Oman. The result was that 16 of the 20 women taught were able to generate income within one week after completing the program. Code Circle, with the support of CTEK, decided to widen the base of impact to Jordan.
