Largest freelancing training hub in Bangladesh
CodersTrust is the brainchild of Ferdinand Kjærulff.
As a Captain of the Danish army he served as recovery officer in Iraq – as a recovery. He pioneered a recovery project with the allied forces, bringing internet and e-learning to the citizens of the region in which he was stationed.
The project was a massive success and inspired him to eventually create CodersTrust – supported by Danida – with a vision to democratize access to education via the internet on a global scale.
“We are taking on the ultimate challenge of our generation in achieving something that millions of dollars worth of bombs and military equipment can't do. And that is to create sustainable peace and freedom by rolling out an inclusive financial system with access to education & the labor market”
- Ferdinand Kjærulff, Founder & CEO, CodersTrust
