TeenCode Holiday Program
TeenCode Africa is an initiative started by Andela developers to establish/introduce programming among African teenagers from high school. This is in a bid to accelerate the development of technology in Africa as part of Andela’s mission. The initiative aims to create opportunities for African teenagers to pick up programming at an early stage. Knowing brilliance is evenly distributed, this would help shape the beginnings of technological leaders in Africa and the rest of the world.
The TeenCode holiday program is run by Andela developers who take time out of their busy schedules to reach out to teenagers, build their curriculum, engineer different applications to be used and take part in PR activities.
