Girls Do Code

As Reeder, we believe that having equal opportunities in all areas of life is the most fundamental building block of global development. We are working to make global and gender equality a permanent value for a stronger tomorrow. As a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact and The Women's Empowerment Principles (WEP's), we develop successful projects and programs in line with the 2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We contribute to
- Directly, SDG 4: Quality Education and SDG 5: Gender Equality,
- Indirectly, SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth, SDG 10: Reducing Inequalities and SDG 17: Partnerships for Goals



With this perspective, CSR project “Girls DO Code” was launched in 2022 with the Ministry of National Education Vocational&Technical Anatolian High Schools (MoNE) to build digital skills and momentum towards a better future to empower women. The program seeks to equip female students with theoretical and practical education to participate in economic life, improve social-cultural and economic conditions. After comprehensive and intense meetings, online education portal "" has been created so that thousands of students can benefit.
Theoretical Education -
In the first year of the project, we achieved our goal of reaching 2.680 students between the ages of 12-18 studying in vocational and technical Anatolian high schools, with online training that were promised to reach 2.500 students. Through "", which we designed as an online education portal, we provided "STEAM" training that integrate the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics through the school administration and teachers of students studying in 50 vocational and technical education Anatolian high schools.
In 7 different modules lasting approximately 6 hours, compatible with the MEB curriculum;
1. Maker Culture,
2. Design Thinking,
3. 3D Design,
4. Algorithms,
5. Game Design,
6. Coding with Arduino and
7. Mobile Programming.



Practical Education
We offered the most successful 278 students, who successfully completed their training and exams, the opportunity to turn the theoretical knowledge they learned into practice and to produce their first prototypes, with hands-on workshops lasting 8 days in each province.
We enabled 35 successful girls to participate in each workshop held 2-3 times in each province.



Project Roadmap
• The education portal “” was established with the approval of the Ministry of National Education for the purpose of realizing online training, and was added to the “safe-sites” within the scope of the Fatih Project carried out by the ministry in all schools.
• Girls studying at vocational high schools through the online education portal in provinces selected as pilots (Istanbul, Manisa, Samsun); benefited from the "STEAM" approach training.
• 2680 students were introduced to online training on Maker culture, Design Thinking, 3D Design, Algorithms, Game Design, Coding with Arduino, and Mobile Programming, which lasted approximately 6 hours and consisted of 7 modules, in line with the MoNE curriculum.
• Face-to-face and hands-on Maker workshops were held for 2 days with 278 students from 50 schools that were successful in online education. Workshops were held twice in each province, with 35 successful students participating in each workshop.
• MoNE-approved certificates were delivered to the students who participated in the face-to-face workshop training.
• Questionnaires were shared with the students in order to measure all the expectations of the students and the benefits provided by the project.
• Girls receiving training will have priority in vocational training/internship in the business.
• The opportunity to participate in the Reeder software development and design competition will be provided.
