Vodafone launches coding programme for youth in Ghana

The Vodafone Ghana National Coding Programme launched in partnership at the Accra Digital Centre with the government will benefit 10 000 youth in the next five years.  The programme is part of Vodafone’s unique strategy to ignite Ghana’s digital revolution.

The initiative, which uses Vodafone’s employees as trainers, is targeted at Ghanaian youth aged between 14 and 18 years who have a passion for technological innovation and will typically last for five days in each region.

Deputy Communications Minister, Vincent Sowah-Odotei said, “When we can transform the lives of the Ghanaian youth through coding; our future world of technology as a country is in safe hands. It is fulfilling that our youth can get this opportunity to become changemakers with coding.”

Yolanda Cuba, Chief Executive of Vodafone Ghana said: “We are confident that this initiative will start a revolution that will elevate Ghana from our current normal technological status to a force to be reckoned with in the future. There are so many things coders can do to change the world and today, right here, we are developing the next generation of world changers inspired by Vodafone.”

The Central Region is the next stop for the initiative; beginning on Monday, August 27th to 31st at Adisadel College.

The dates for the sessions are as follows and interested youth can apply here.

Accra: 20th- 24th Aug. 2018

Takoradi: 27th- 31st Aug. 2018

Kumasi: 3rd- 7th Sept. 2018
