UNESCO YouthMobile

UNESCO YouthMobile has been joining forces with SAP to empower young Africans with coding and digital skills within the framework of Africa Code Week since 2016. Building on the experience of worldwide initiatives that introduce young people to computer science programming (learning-to-code) and problem solving (coding-to-learn), they help facilitate training and workshops for teachers and youth with a sharp focus on increasing female participation. UNESCO is also working with SAP to strengthen the gender component of the ACW Train-the-Teacher package while furthering dialogue with governments to sustain the excitement around 21st century learning.

To help build community capacity and empower more girls with digital skills in 2019, UNESCO, in cooperation with SAP ACW and non-profit partner the Camden Education Trust, will select local implementation partners and assign seed-grants (between 1,000 and 2,000 USD) to public institutions or registered non-profit organizations. This will help the recipient organizations deliver hands-on coding workshops for girls (aged 8 -16) and/or Train-the-Trainer sessions for teachers and trainers (classes should be gender balanced) in their local communities during ACW 2019. You have until midnight Central European Time Friday 23 August 2019 to submit your application.
