Dear Community, 

As you know, here at King we look forward to a sweeter future that brings joy and fun to everybody. ❤️ And we work for it!

How? Sponsoring non-profit organisations like “Hello World”, that organises coding camps for kids and youth during the summers in Stockholm and on the weekends. 

Would you like to learn more about this collaboration? 

🌟 How it started:

Hello World was founded with a clear goal: help young people boost their digital creativity. But there's more to it! The founders wanted to make a significant difference: as the Secretary General and co-founder Dan Wolters says, he wanted to inspire the entire human population, not just those with a Y chromosome.” 

In addition, he also wanted to make sure that everybody could attend their camps, regardless of their financial background. And that’s why Hello World offers differentiated fees, depending if you are coming from an affluent household or a home with smaller financial resources.

That’s where King chipped in. “We started to reach out to different companies and organizations in Sweden, and asked them to join us on this quest to attract and ignite youth from a much broader perspective than the usual suspects.”


🌟 How it’s going:

And Hello World is crushing it!  

“This project is really like barn raising. Companies and organizations are coming together to make things happen, to change the status quo. King, for example, besides financial support, have provided us with the kind support from some of the Defold team, and who have created a fantastic learning material for our most advanced track which we call Studio X and which are held at a level equalling what students at the universities are studying”, says Wolters.

🌟 What about the future?

Isn’t it inspiring? Hello World is growing every day with kids who would like to master the tools they need to create worlds of tomorrow.

This summer, the Hello World! Camp 2021 has been converted to a digital camp, becoming Sweden's largest digital camp in programming to create as fun and developing a summer as possible in digital creation for children and young people.

What will happen next? We cannot know, but we can't wait to see what the future holds for Hello World!
