We work with partners, including business leaders, faiths organisations, NGOs and social justice campaigns, to deliver projects that help children get the best start in life and a quality education. Theirworld projects include school places for Syrian refugees, Code Clubs for girls, a child marriage-free zone, the Jennifer Brown Research Laboratory and the Theirworld Edinburgh Birth Cohort.

Code Clubs

Code Clubs

Code Clubs are spaces where girls can learn about technology and develop their skills, confidence and creativity. The clubs help girls to build skills they need in a technology-driven economy and to be aware how critical thinking and leadership can be applied in their own communities.​
