Coding For Africa
Shaping Africa’s Future through Coding Education.
Discover how our ‘Coding for Africa’ initiative is transforming the tech landscape, one student at a time. With engaging seminars in secondary schools, we’re opening doors to endless possibilities in programming and tech careers, empowering the next generation of African innovators and tech leaders.
2016As of December 2016, Dixre embarked on a project to empower youths at the senior secondary level with the following aims and objectives: To teach them basic programing skills. To contribute to the growth and sustainability of Information Technology in Africa. To help African youths become self-sufficient by developing a skill in programing. To create awareness about the opportunities in Information Technology and its value in the 21st century.
2016Now, we're expanding our program to more schools. We're using a user-friendly platform called Scratch, which helps beginners learn programming concepts easily. In our workshops, students create games using this platform. We're excited about our next seminar, where we'll introduce more young people to the world of technology. At Dixre, we're passionate about helping Africa's youth succeed in Information and Communications.
2017In today's digital world, knowing how to program is really important. People learn best when they're young. At Dixre, we want to help high school students learn the basics of programming. We were inspired by the United Kingdom, where they teach programming to students from a young age. We held a seminar at Saint Michael’s Anglican College in Kaduna, where we taught students how to create simple computer programs using Python. The students and teachers loved it!
2019In our fast-changing world, computers have completely transformed how things work. To thrive in today's global economy, it's vital that young people have the right IT skills. These skills don't just help them adapt to new technology but also compete on a global level. We believe that every young person should have the chance to learn these skills so they can succeed in today's digital world.
