One mobile school serves five schools in a year. Each school receives four hours of training weekly. Our training runs for one academic year.

Partnering to create
opportunities in Africa

Equipping young people with marketable job skills so they can provide for themselves and their families is one of the most effective ways to overcome poverty.

Every student should have the opportunity to learn coding and computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path. See more stats on
