From Typing to Coding, Kids Comp Camp helps young learners in Africa's underserved communities access quality computing training, right in their community, to empower them to explore new opportunities in technology. Kids Comp Camp is a proud program of The Africa Centurion Initiative, a Nonprofit registered in Kenya.
4 in every 5 Kenyans of working age don't have a job. The rate of unemployment in Kenya (East Africa's economic powerhouse) is at an outstanding 40%, making it the worst in the region.
Yet, in 10 years it is estimated there will be a million more jobs than qualified computer science students. Shockingly, less than 2% of children in Africa finish school with any computer coding skills.
Clearly, these gaps can be addressed by equipping this young-able minds with in-demand tech skills they need to be creators in the digital economy, and more importantly to be active and responsible citizens in their communities and beyond.
Designed to travel and camp in a local community, Kids Comp Camp partners with local institutions to host the After School Tech programs.
To sustain the impact in the community we train the wider adult community (teachers, parents, and youth) and empower them with digital and entrepreneurial skills to support the kids as well as improve their livelihoods.
