About the project

< code / it > is a digital literacy learning program that provides public elementary school students with access to basic computer science and programming education as part of their educational curriculum.

The project was designed to address the widening digital divide in many disadvantaged communities and originated from our belief that technology can change lives. Through < code / it >, we believe every Filipino student deserves a chance to learn the digital skills needed to remain relevant in the workplace of tomorrow.
