Kids Of Code started in 2018 with the charity origin story and was a part of the original concept of Games For Love during the 4-hour dream session of what a global organization for children could look like that could impact all future generations for children with a massive ripple effect. To do so, you would need to solve, or at least greatly reduce the power of poverty.
The concept being that poverty in its most basic form is just two things;
1. Lack of access to specialized education
2. Lack of opportunity to use that specialized education for an income
Solving poverty has many other global facets like lack of access to basic needs such as food, shelter water, electricity, internet, funds to purchase equipment, or properly store them. This is why Games For Love operates on Maslow’s Hierarchy Of Needs when operating in any country, but especially developing countries to assess needs, wants, and motivations.
To give children a fighting chance in the world, they need access to specialized education and opportunities for experience. This is why Kids Of Code was created, then advancing to Games For Love’s other programs such as Scholarship of Excellence, and the Interns International Programs
