New partnership with HackYourFuture will help refugees, immigrants, and asylum seekers into the tech world.


A new five-year partnership with HackYourFuture will help people with limited access to further education in acquiring the necessary skills to become web developers and entering a very in-demand field.

HackYourFuture is a non-profit coding school for people with limited access to education and the labour market. The organisation was founded in Amsterdam in 2016 and is now active in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Denmark. The curriculum is open-source and is also used by coding schools in Greece, Spain, and the UK.

Too many refugees and immigrants are outside the labour market. It is a major challenge for the job seekers as well as an economic obstacle for society. Furthermore, there is a widespread shortage of labour, not least IT specialists. These are the societal challenges HackYourFuture help reduce.

HackYourFuture addresses the need for more web developers as well as diversity and inclusion in the tech industry in Denmark. They do this by offering relevant tech education to individuals facing challenging situations that prevent them from fulfilling their professional potential. Thereby bridging the gap to the labour market, making employment as a web developer possible. HackYourFuture simply help people to hack their own futures.

Over the past 6 years, HackYourFuture has established a proven track record of their free 8-months education programme. Lind Foundation will help HackYourFuture scale and expand their programmes in both Copenhagen and Aarhus. A partnership period of 5 years provides HackYourFuture with the possibility to prove their long-term impact as well as offer shorter (10-12 weeks) programmes to the most disadvantaged people of their target group.

We are looking forward to following and measuring the long-term social changes.
