Our Story


CODE FOR GIRLS is an organization that aims to empower girls in the tech industry by building a community of talented girls from all disciplines, teaching them how to code (a.k.a create magic from scratch), work together, and develop their personal and professional skills.

CODE FOR GIRLS started as an initiative by two friends, Deema & Nora. Two passions collided, and CODE FOR GIRLS was born to be the first of it's kind in Saudi Arabia.

Girls, here we learn how to believe, support and achieve!
