Teaching youth to code from an early age will help them develop other learning skills that they will need in their academic journey.
It is important that these skills are taught at a very young age so that they form part of their lives and they embrace a culture of problem solving and developing solutions to tackle day-to-day problems that they face within their community.
Coding is considered the literacy of the digital age. This is a whole new language for the youth to speak fluently and express themselves in the 21st century. It is estimated that 11 million youth will enter the African labour market every year over the next decade and the digital jobs could increase their income by 40% to 200%. It goes without saying that acting NOW is a MUST!!
We therefore view coding as a problem-solving tool for participating learners through a hands-on, playful learning environment.
Our programme combines youthful creativity and curiosity with school subjects such as Mathematics, Leadership, Entrepreneurship Development and Innovation in a vibrant digital environment. This allows participating learners to become adept at computer programming in short periods of time
