Hub volunteers at Africa Code Week training

From July 27 – 28, 2017 Hub volunteers Mats’eliso Moruthane and Ts’episo Mahooe were part of a group of more than 100 people who took part in Training of Trainers for Africa Code Week in Lesotho.

We  are excited to be a part of this movement to empower future generations with the coding tools and skills they need to thrive in the 21st century workforce, and become key actors of Africa’s economic development.

Through the initiative, 426,758 young Africans were introduced to coding in 2016. This year Africa Code Week will take place from October 18-25, join us at The Hub!

Africa Code Week is supported by UNESCO and Gem Institute. If you have any questions regarding Africa Code Week, feel free to contact us at The Hub.

Read what Ts’episo had to say about her experience at the training:

“It was really great being part of the training. Since we are increasingly living in a world of technology, it is good to have our young generation and school children involved in coding from a young age.

I’m looking forward to sharing my knowledge with others and help make Lesotho a country of programmers and coders. If Basotho can get used to coding and programming and fall in love with it, no doubt in the coming years Marc Zuckerberg Junior will be coming from Lesotho. It could help the economy of our country grow, because we won’t be using apps from other people, or play games invented by other people, but we will be having our own.”
