Who We Are
TEKEDU is a not-for-profit organisation, registered in 2014, under the Moldovan law as A.O. Asociatia pentru Dezvoltarea Tehnologiilor Informationale EDUCAT with registration number: 1014620000936.
Our mission is to contribute to the higher involvement of young people, especially girls in tech, who are living in poor conditions, through trainings and internships in vocational-technical institutions, so that a career option in IT becomes realistic for them and would ensure a well-paid job.
In July 2014, we launched our first summer camp “TINCO” together with Moldovans studying abroad and The Diaspora Relations Office to help children from orphanages learn tech.
We have introduced and taught-tech to more than 800 children and youth in more than 25 regions in Moldova. We have worked with children from institutionalised centres, Roma ethnic-group, young people with locomotive-disability and gender equality.
In TEKEDU, we are passionate about what we do and we believe that Moldovan youth are the key to shaping a prosperous future. With the experience we provide, we educate young people from and in rural communities through tech-education and social-entrepreneurship.
