Coderise is a global social enterprise aiming to tackle inequality in developing nations by empowering youth through computer programming education. A non-profit, Coderise wants to arm kids the coding skills needed to build their own simple web application.

The initiative’s first project is currently in its fundraising campaign phase. With a little under a month left, Coderise’s Indiegogo campaign hopes to fund their planned first stop in Latin America.

The crowdfunding campaign will enable the non-profit’s first major excursion and begin tackling the issue of social and economic disparity by preparing young people in developing nations with the skills to start off in the web and technology industries.
