CodeSprout will teach teenagers how to code so they can grow up to be self-reliant and employable.
We envision a future where children of today will grow up to create amazing unicorns bigger than Microsoft, Google, Facebook, and the Amazon of today. We believe this will not happen automatically, some people would have to sacrifice their resources to create a better tomorrow for young people. As University students, we are already sacrificing our time and competencies to create a better tomorrow for young people, please support this mission.
CodeSprout is using the train-the-trainers model to ensure 400 teenagers or more in high school learn and master software engineering skills by 2019. These kids have a lot of free time which they spend on frivolities, we want to convert the free time to productive ones. We want to sprout their interest in S.T.E.M. early enough so they can contribute to human capital development not only in their home countries but globally.
We are infusing innovative teaching techniques into volunteer University students so they can in turn train these kids. This initiative will be rolled out in partnership with local chapters of technology giants such as Andela, Udacity, Coursera, Microsoft4Afrika, Google Developers Group, IBM West Africa, and Facebook.
Every dollar you donate is securing a productive future for the underprivileged children and teens in low-income neighborhoods
By the end of 2019, these young adults with the guidance of seasoned developers would have developed at least one innovative product per person to solve resilient local challenges that can scale globally and of course the skill stays with them for life.
How many kids would you sponsor today? How many friends would you tell about this?
If you donate to support the future of these kids, your name will be written in our Book of Fame as well as on our website in the list of funders. We would also send you regular report detailing the impact your investment is making. Let's work together to create a sustainable future for the young people.
