Africa Code Week 2022 Comes to an End

The acquisition of basic digital skills at a young age, in this fast-growing technological era, has become a necessity. Undoubtedly, the curiosity of children about how technology works, in our part of the world, is an area that is being explored and is attracting growing attention.

Many institutions in Ghana are making conscious efforts to support the drive of digital literacy to support the need for increasing interest in entrepreneurship and bridging the digital skills gap. The government of Ghana is also making efforts to support the drive for digital literacy through the introduction of STEM curricula for Primary and Junior High School students.  

The DreamOval Foundation has for the past decade made significant efforts to support the provision and equipping of Ghanaian youth and educators with digital skills and resources. Through its programs, the Foundation has made a considerable impact in increasing access to digital skills for educators and students, particularly in remote communities in Ghana.

The Africa Code Week program is being implemented by the DreamOval Foundation in Ghana. Together with SAP, UNESCO, Irish Aid, and Camden Education, the Foundation has taken a major step, through the program, to bridge the gap of technology illiteracy in our part of the world by providing digital skills that would help the African child and youth catch up with the rest of the world in the advancement of technology.

After nearly two weeks of intensive coding sessions, with about 500 teachers and almost 90,000 school children across the country, the 2022 edition of Africa Code Week comes to a successful end. 

Africa Code Week 2022 began on the 24th of October 2022 and ended on the 4th of November 2022. During this period, all teachers who trained during the Africa Code Week Train the Trainer program, organized by DreamOval Foundation, were equipped with the necessary resources to take their students through basic coding skills, using the SCRATCH coding program. 

Master trainers, experts in the SCRATCH coding program, were sent to schools across the country to assist the teachers in training their students. The students learned how to develop mobile games using the SCRATCH program.

The Africa Code Week is an initiative by SAP as part of its social investment to drive sustainable growth in Africa with support from UNESCO, Irish Aid, and Camden Education. In Ghana DreamOval Foundation, with support from the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service (GES), is at the forefront of Africa Code Week.
