During October 5th - 9th last year, the Africa Code Week took place in Rwanda. Over 800 students at five primary schools had been taught in programming. In order to have the proper IT equipment at the school sites specially equipped buses from RDB had been provided.

Have a look at the following video here to see what happened in that week. The initiative was facilitated and organized by kLab.

Due to the positive acceptance and feedback given on the initiative kLab and Gira ICT organized a second, similar training that took place from December 14th - 17th: during their holidays over 400 primary students were also trained to code using Scratch 2.0.

This year April 2th another training took place in Kigeme refugee camp at Nyamagabe: kLab in partnership with Refugee Girl Need You trained 84 teenager girls and 15 trainers.

In the long run it is intended to train at least 100 refugee girls and 25 trainers from each camp in Rwanda on how to code. Despite the initiative one of the main challenges remains: lack of access to computers at the camp sites. If this is not overcome refugees will be left behind when it comes to digital literacy.

All mentioned activities of Africa Code Week above could only happen thanks to the strong support of the following two organizations: SAP and Galway Education Center.
