Africa Code Week – get involved!

Africa Code Week aims to empower African youth with the coding skills they need to prosper in their career. The initiate will officially be launched during the World Economic Forum on Africa (Cape Town, 3–5 June) and a pilot event will take place at the Cape Town Science Centre from June 1 to June 4.


Coding is is everywhere to be found in our daily lifes, however, in Africa, less than 1% of children leave school with basic coding skills. Knowing how to code could increase  their income by 40% to 200%, acting now is essential to help youngsters seize the opportunities the digital sector can offer. 

From October 1 to 10, hundreds of playful coding workshops will be organized for three different age groups in South Africa, Angola, Cameroon, Kenya, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Senegal, Morocco, Tunisia, Togo and Egypt.

Teachers interested in hosting coding workshops will be trained and children aged 8-11 to be among the first to engage in this historical initiative. Get involved and participate in the pilot event
