“We do believe that teaching programming skills is essential to preparing young Nigerian children to move forward in the 21st century and provides a strong competitive advantage sorely needed. Our vision is to embed computer programming as an important part of our school curriculum so every African child will start at a young age,” the company said on Indiegogo.
All this is at no cost to the participants. The $20,000 fund will cover the tuition, lunch and transportation of the 100 girls and boys organisers aim to train this summer at the rate of $200 per child for the one month duration.
The campaign ends in 13 days with 2% of its funding goal met. You can check out the campaign page on Indiegogo for more information and to fund the project.
