African Youth Empowered with Digital Skills for Life!

"A massive investment in education and skills transfer is essential if the South is to compete in the global communications marketplace. This too requires long term international co-operation.” Nelson Mandela’s words may have been spoken over twenty years ago, they still echo through today’s complex digital world. 

Spearheaded by SAP in 2015 as part of its social investments to drive sustainable growth in Africa, Africa Code Week is a digital skills development initiative that has benefitted over 4 million young Africans so far. 

It takes an empowered village to raise a child in the digital age: Strong partnerships with the public, private and non-profit sectors are the driving force behind the initiative’s ability to drive sustainable learning impact across the continent in support of UN Sustainable Development Goals.

SAP and UNESCO are now joining forces with over 130 partners to:
