To critical reception, on January 22, 2019, the launch of the program Code on the Road: Empowering Migrant Women and Girls through Business Entrepreneurship and Software Training took place at the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurial Excellence (CIEE) at Al-Hussein Technical University (HTU) in Amman, Jordan.
This program was founded by Aya Burweila, the founder and director of the nonprofit civil society organisation Code on the Road and her international team of dynamic men and women specializing in technology, civil society, entrepreneurship and education. The program is funded by the U.S. State Department through the Alumni Engagement Innovation Fun and supported by both local and international partners in Jordan and Greece. The launch was a huge success, bringing together actors from local and international NGOs, the private sector and civil society. Catering was provided by Bilforon, a mobile application for ordering home food from home-based kitchens, many of whom are Syrian refugees.
