We have become champions for coding education in Ghana, driving results through program design and delivery, strategic industry and public partnerships, research and advocacy.
In fulfilling our mission, “Ensuring that every child in Ghana is equipped with digital skills, “Ghana Code Club is happy to introduce for the first time in Ghana, Community Coding program on Wheels.
We travel across Ghana to bring hands-on, interactive technology education to Ghanaian kids and youth. It is our mission to ensure that every child particularly girls are equipped with the right tools for digital making
We organize teacher training and support for volunteers and educators to run free, extra-curricular coding clubs for children. Clubs can be run from a range of venues, from schools, libraries, to community centers. Kids are free to build and share their ideas, learning along the way. The Code Clubs meet during school extracurricular sessions or after school sessions for an hour per week.
We provide fun projects that are easy to follow step-by-step guides which help children learn Scratch, HTML & CSS, Python and introducing processor to build games, animations, mobile apps and websites. The projects gradually introduce coding concepts to allow children to build their knowledge incrementally, meaning there’s also no need for the adult running the session to be a computing expert.
The goal of this weekend school for kids between 5-12 is to increase reading skills , fluency with computational thinking and programming concepts.
I Read and Code is a Creative Computing program designed for kids to explore and create! The kids read and document their stories in a design workbook, then use SCRATCH to create their characters to come out live with code. Children learn how to provide feedback on other students’ projects.
During summer, we introduces kids between ages 10-18 to Arduino tutorials that bring together craft, electronics, and programming. We walk them through the process of making a series of quirky customizable projects including a sparkling bracelet, a glow in the dark bookmark, a fabric piano, and a monster that sings when you hold its hands.
Play with cutting-edge technologies and learn sewing, programming, and circuit design along the way. This program is a great way to introduce girls to engineering. After they exit the bootcamp, kids will explore the projects with their friends and parents, REGISTER NOW
We are so excited to have been chosen by the Africa Code Week organizers to become a proud member of the #eskills4girls Africa Network. The G20 #eSkills4Girls initiative aims at tackling the existing gender digital divide in particular in low income and developing countries. The goal is to globally increase the access of women and girls in the digital world and to boost relevant education and employment opportunities.
This platform was initiated by the G20 members together with UNESCO, UN Women, ITU and OECD to collect and disseminate information and knowledge as well as policy recommendations, good practices and flagship projects on gender digital equality
100 GIRLS in Apps Development is a program dedicated to introduce 100 GIRLS between ages 15 – 24 into Mobile Apps Development each year. We also form Clubs from Senior High Schools dedicated for Girls to ignite their interest in technology.
Ghana Code Club is currently establishing eskills4girls in all Ghana Senior High Schools. Learn about how you can be of support
The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in recognition of the important role ICTs play in meeting objectives of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and in particular women empowerment, has adopted a resolution on gender mainstreaming with the support of Member States of the Union to advance gender equality and women empowerment through the use of ICTs.
The resolution among others called on Members States to develop and/or review policies relating to the information society to ensure the inclusion of gender issues in all activities and promote the capacity building of women and young children in telecommunications and ICTs. In line with this resolution, Member States were encouraged to identify and implement interventions aimed at exposing women and young girls to opportunities existing in the telecommunications and ICT field and encourage them to take advantage of these opportunities. Governments were encouraged to also observe the annual celebration of a “Girls in ICT Day” Event in collaboration with relevant stakeholders.
As a result of this, Girls-in-ICT Day has now become an important initiative on the calendar of the Ministry of Communications which is celebrated annually on regional basis to empower a selected number of girls. Ghana Code Club provides support and training to help the Ministry deploy this program successfully by establishing ICT Clubs for Junior High Level students to become creative and confident in a technology world.
