INTRODUCING CODING TO 3000 YOUNG MINDS THIS OCTOBER

OCTOBER 15 – 26, 2018

As a network partner for Africa Code Week, we were glad to join thousands of volunteers around Africa for ACW 2018. This was our fourth year impacting young lives alongside Google and SAP.

INTRODUCING CODING TO 600,000 YOUNG AFRICANS AGED 8 TO 24 ACROSS 35 COUNTRIES

Spearheaded by SAP in 2015 as part of its social investments to drive sustainable growth in Africa, Africa Code Week is the story of hundreds of schools, teachers, governments and nonprofits getting together to bridge the digital and gender skills gap in Africa. Their goal: empower the young generation with the coding skills they need to thrive in the 21st century.

HALF A MILLION YOUTH ENGAGED SO FAR

With 426,000 young Africans introduced to coding in 2016 alone, not to mention 10 Governments and hundreds of partners on board already, Africa Code Week is living proof that public-private partnerships are the key to drive sustainable change in the digital age. This vision is fully in line with the African Development Bank’s conclusion that “the scale of the youth unemployment problem in Africa requires bold, ambitious approaches (that leverage) strong partnerships to bring coherence and scale to youth employment interventions across the continent.”

EMPOWERING THOUSANDS OF TEACHERS

Africa Code Week is about mobilizing the collective efforts, expertise, and resources to deliver on joint education priorities. Every year, SAP sends skilled volunteers to targeted African countries to train thousands of teachers that will, in turn, train their peers And students. This model provides a sound, scalable structure for inter-group knowledge sharing, unlocking people’s potential and desire to serve as resources for
each other.
