Give the gift of digital literacy helps to bring computational thinking and coders in PAAJAF Educational Institute (PEI) classroom and youth in the Gbawe community to explore technology. The students will learn to code and electronics from the age of 5 years to become strong computational thinkers and coders in the future.
This project targets children and youth from the age of 5 to 35years, categorized; Early Creators for 5 – 7 years-old, Kid Coders for 8 – 12 years-old, Teen Coders for 13 – 19 years -old and Young Adult Coders for 20 – 35years old. The first year of the project implementation, the project will reach to 50 students in PEI classroom and 50 children in the Gbawe Community from the Early Creators and Kid Coders.
Classes will be held two time in a week in PEI Classroom on Wednesdays and Fridays and for the Gbawe community on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Thousands of at-risk children and young adults in Ghana have never used a computer. Help them to become computational thinkers and coders for this Digital Age. Through our training, young people will be better qualified to find employment and contribute to their community. This training will help bridge the Digital Divide.
There is a dire need for give of digital literacy (IT) training as there is no community-based computer training centre in Gbawe and no computer lab at PEI. Many people cannot afford the high cost of purchasing a computer and materials for coursework, and most people don’t have access to the Internet from home.
PAAJAF needs experienced designers, developers, and donors who want to give helping hands to help us realize our dream in PEI classroom and in Gbawe community to develop computational thinkers and coders by giving a gift of digital literacy.
Volunteers and donors are needed to look for resources, plan and prepare curriculum, teach, fund-raise and manage the project with PAAJAF to bridge the gap of digital literacy in the Gbawe community to produce computational thinkers and programmers.
Other resources needed include:
-Computer room/lab maintenance
-Computer lab equipment
-Project staff salary
