Happy New Year from the CoderDojo Foundation Team!

We now have over 550 Dojos in 55 countries worldwide, with New Dojos being set up in China, Brazil and the Democratic Republic of Congo in the past 2 months! We are currently impacting over 22,000 children on a regular basis and have over 3000 technical mentors worldwide.

Since the last report, we have expanded our partnership with CodeStarter to provide laptops to children in Dojos located in underserved areas WORLDWIDE! Before Christmas some Foundation members delivered the first international batch of laptops to the Deansrath Dojo in Dublin.

In December, the pilot for our Recommended Practice project ended. Recommended Practice helps Dojos, both new and old, around the world to adhere to best practice guidelines. Upon review, we will be rolling out our final principles and guidelines out to our 500+ Dojos worldwide which will help them create the best environment for kids to learn how to code. From an initial pilot of 30 Dojo we are delighted that we now have 13 Dojos aligned.

CoderDojo have also participated in many events in the past few months, including the BT Young Scientist Exhibition (BTYSE) in Dublin, which has helped us to attract New Organisers & Mentors for Dojos and more attendees for existing Dojos. At BTYSE CoderDojo Ninjas showed off their latest projects to the 10,000 attendees and the team ran HTML lessons for the aspiring scientists exhibiting and attending the showcase.

For more information about what we have been up to check out our Q4 report in the link below.

We want to take this opportunity to thank all of our new and ongoing donors for supporting CoderDojo over the holiday period! We hope you will continue to support our vision of giving every child in the world the opportunity to learn how to code in a safe and creative environment. We would love if you could also inform your friends, family or colleagues about our work and encourage them to support us too!

Busy as ever here at the CoderDojo Foundation with lots of events and Community News to share with you since our last report.

In September we reached the 500 Dojo mark and we are now operating Dojos in 50 countries worldwide with Dojos being set up in new countries Madagascar, Cameroon, and Argentina in the past few weeks. CoderDojo is exponentially growing and we are striving to impact 100,000 young people every week by 2016. 

We have also held numerous events for European Code Week in October, including a Dojo in the European Parliament where the 30 CoderDojo kids from 6 EU Countries taught MEPs their first line of code. Check out our post event report in the links below.

Lastly, the CoderDojo Foundation have announced partnerships with AutoDesk and CodeStarter in the past few months. Code Starter are partnering with us to help give children in underprivileged areas access to a laptop, and Autodesk are giving access to free 3D Design software for Dojos globally.

For more information about what we have been up to check out our Q3 report in the link below. 

We value all of our supporters incredibly highly and without your support we could not continue to aspire to make possible our vision of giving every child in the world the opportunity to learn how to code in a safe and creative environment. We encourage you all to continue your support, and we would love if you could inform your friends, family or colleagues about our work and encourage them to support us too!

Report #4 Nearly at 500!

CoderDojo Coolest Projects

We have been incredibly busy at the Foundation working on many exciting developments over the past number of months!

As of 1st August 2014 there are 460 verifed Dojos around the world! The growth CoderDojo has experienced has been incredible and the Foundation is continously supporting new and exisiting Dojos around the world giving more young people the opportunity to learn code and be creative with technology. 

In June we re-branded to the CoderDojo Foundation. This has come about after internal discussion and the aim was two fold. To clear up confusion surrounding who the Foundation is and who we support and to bring a new level of alignment to the ever growing CoderDojo movement! In June Mary Moloney, a senior executive from Accenture joined us taking up the position as CEO. 

For more information about what we have been up to please see the below link to our Q2 report! 

To continue supporting CoderDojo we require resources to sustain and kick off new projects. We urge you to continue supporting us.
