Developh is a global technology non-profit that seeks to nurture youth innovation through accessible computer science education, opportunity, and community. We believe in bringing the underrepresented youth forward in technology, refactoring the tech pipeline to forward inclusive, impact-oriented innovation. Our ultimate goal is to break the innovation gap, living in a world where startups and innovation are mass-oriented and inclusive of the greater world.
Serving students from middle school to college, we empower, educate, and invest in students to pursue social impact ventures and career paths in technology. Our organization executes programs and initiatives across education, advocacy, and community through our accessible, online platform and across our network of chapters in high schools and universities.
Primarily serving developing countries and communities, Developh recognizes the importance of a peer-filled community in motivating students to pursue technology and innovation and as a support system, education that is accessible, teachable, contextual, and inclusive of students from all backgrounds and walks of life, and opportunities that equip them to be students at day, and changemakers at night through technology. The organization is unique in its entirely student-led nature with a focus on making tangible, impact-oriented ventures while nurturing both technical and soft skills.
We're a global nonprofit investing in student-led innovation in the developing world to break the technology gap—supporting students through education and accelerator initiatives to build tech for social good.
Founded in 2016 by Chiara Amisola at the age of 16 in a high school in Manila, Philippines to fill a gap in a lack of technology education—a group of students saw potential to make a difference in the world through technology. With every line of code coming closer to a solution (no matter how small), we sought to elevate student-led creation, build a network for student collaboration, and expose more students to build alongside them.
Most notably in the developing world, the overwhelming divide in education and resources deprives us of maximizing a culture of creation that could change the current state of affairs in the startup and tech realm. We realized that we want to be part of unleashing creation in every student, breaking barriers and building communities as we learn to build for the world.
