Let me introduce Refugee Code Week. It is an invitation by a SAP CSR EMEA project in collaboration with SAP University Alliances and the UN’s refugee agency (UNHCR). It is a derivative of the impactful, annually conducted European Code Week and Africa Code Week that takes place in 56 countries and have affected 200,000+  students and participants.
 
As the digital world is becoming more prominent, coding is increasingly becoming a critical tool for the people of the contemporary information age.  This program, fully sponsored by SAP, will effectively introduce participants to program to the essential global language of coding in a simple and fun way.
 
The mission of Refugee Code Week is to address education shortage among refugee population, create a full lifecycle of skills support for young people in refugee camps, and empower adults and youth with critical, job-relevant coding tools and skill.
 
The initiative will take place during the week of October 15th-23rd, 2016. To prepare for the event, we are organizing pilot events that will include train-the-trainers sessions and actual pilot coding workshops led by master trainers. Those trained during the train-the-trainer sessions will be asked to conduct the coding workshops during the main event.
 
Our students at JUST are invited to be part of the Refugee Code Week, starting with the upcoming Jordan Refugee Code Week Pilot event that will take place from March 1st -3rd. During the time, volunteers from JUST would join TTT workshops to become qualified trainers for the main event in October.
 
Please find attached file “Jordan Refugee Code Week pilot” to learn more about the event.

1.     Basic programing TTT workshop: Attendees will learn basic programing skills using the MIT developed Scratch Code platform and will be eligible to train 8-11 year age group during Refugee Code Week main event.

2.     Web development TTT workshop: Attendees will learn mobile application development skills and will be eligible to train 18-24 year age group during Africa Code Week main event in October.
