The Province of Tucuman is the smallest in Argentina and the most densely populated. It has 1,767,500 and records 899,154 people living in poverty. Almost half (49.6%) of young people between 15 and 29 years of age are in a situation of poverty, which distances them from the right to education, training and employability.
Future Coders is a Fundacion Leon program aimed at young people from Tucuman who live in vulnerable contexts and with difficulties to be linked to technological resources. In coordination with companies, the program aims to democratize technology. It provides training in programming and digital languages and first training and employment opportunities for its recipients. Students also receive support in social skills and are able to engage in learning experiences.
Young people trained in computer languages and inserted in the working world of coding, are people capable of responding to the demands of the modern world.

Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Connect poor preschoolers to books in Tucuman. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
