Social Hackers Academy
The first tech education school in Athens for vulnerable groups.
Today there are 62,000 refugees stuck in Greece. Due to economic crisis the country is one of the least prepared in Europe to deal with this influx of people. Currently basic necessities are paid for in large part by government organizations and NGOs. But very little money is invested in sustainable solutions to the problem like formal education and skills training.
In September of 2017 we launched a code school to teach students how to become web developers. Our goal is to provide a path out of the camps and towards a dignified, financially independent life.
We pursue create a world where solidarity prevails and everyone enjoys equal opportunities, in having access in education in the labour market.
We pursue to empower vulnerable groups, to develop themselves and integrate in the society, through providing them accessible tech education and digital skills acquisition.
We aim to bridge the gap between the lack of digital skills, among social vulnerable groups and the need from the market, of people, tech literate
We value honest approaches in business, our technology and in the classroom.
We aim for transparency and flexibility in everything we do.
We respect the differences in each other while working towards our common goal.
We value hard work and the drive to achieve more.
We embody the hacker culture of doing more with less.
