Scratch Coding Program at Achievers Ghana on Africa Code Week.

Imagine a nation with a coding generation? Young kids, adults and youth, using core analytical skills to solve problems, build industry and reduce inequality in Ghana.

Coding is the literacy of the digital age indeed, a whole new language for children and young adults to speak fluently and express themselves in the 21st Century.

This week marks the Africa Code Week and Achievers Girls are privileged to learned Scratch Programming from representatives of SAP supported by DreamOval.

downloadScratch is a programming language and an online community where children can program and share interactive media such as stories, games, and animation with people from all over the world. As children create with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically.

The eager to learn and to acquire new skills comes with joy and excitements at Achievers Learning Center. The girls were taken through developing basic skills in animation.

The program was graced with introduction of Achievers Ghana and it’s mission and vision by Amadu Mohammed, Director of Achievers Ghana and supported by Mr Francis Ahene-Affoh of DreamOval and some representatives of SAP.

The future of Ghana depends on the young people of today, and it is important that we develop this talent while it is young to ensure that we do not lose it later. We have a solution that can effectively address and radically change the current education system through enabling our students to become part of a global campaign that will see them being able to compete with the best of the best around the world.
