Go Digital: is a Digital and Coding Skills training for teachers and young Nigerians between ages 8 and 40 years to build their digital and coding skills and empower them with valuable 21st century digital skills in preparation for opportunities presented by the 4th industrial revolution. Teachers participate in the Train-The-Trainers session and are able to train their peers and students to increase the reach and impact of the project. Students are empowered with coding and digital skills and are able to deploy projects to solve endemic challenges within their communities.
Objective: By 2023, we will train 100,000 Nigerian Youths and 25,000 teachers across Nigerian cities on digital and coding skills to contribute to preparing a generation ready for the 4th industrial revolution.
