SAP SE will train more than 150 000 youth in 30 African countries this year to foster digital literacy and equip the continent’s rising generation with job-relevant digital skills.
SAP’s Africa Code Week 2016 will run from 15-23 October 2016, with thousands of free coding workshops and online trainings offered to children and youth aged 8 to 24.
Jean Philbert Nsengimana, Rwanda’s Minister of Youth and ICT, states that, “Today literacy should go beyond just knowing how to read and write, even beyond digital literacy - knowing how to use computers. Basic literacy for the next generation should be about coding.”
