About

As society is becoming increasingly digital and interconnected and technological transformation also growing at an accelerated pace, companies across a wide range of sectors are facing a shortage of professionals having coding skills to fulfill their needs, and as technology continues to increase, already disadvantaged people have less access and ability to reap these digital dividends, and are being left further and further behind.
Our mission is to provide access to technology opportunities for young people in Africa, through problem solving and coding while connecting them to internship opportunities and remote jobs, we seek to ensure that young people regardless of where they live or their status, and those with fewer resources can access the opportunities they need in life to succeed.

About Teens Can Code

In the old model of education, the job of schools was to teach students everything they needed to know for life and work. In a rapidly changing world, this is no longer sufficient. Today, students must acquire knowledge, competencies and mindsets that prepare them to be productive members of a modern workforce in a global economy powered technology. They must be prepared to continually learn new skills throughout their lives for a future we cannot predict.


We are a registered social enterprise that is passionately committed to spurring innovation in education, formed by a dedicated team of educators, content developers, engineers and interaction designers with a focus on developing the next generation and integrating Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics, Entreprenuership and Design Thinking systems into the educational curriculum- while supporting the needs of educators and students throughout their educational journey, and bridging the technology talent gap.


We believe that the path out of poverty begins when young people have access to quality education with a focus on improving learning and skills. Our work is to ensure that every young person has access to these learning experiences that help them acquire knowledge and skills they need to thrive and continuously learn in an ever-changing world.
