Africa Code Academy

was formed with the fundamental belief in the power of Africa (and its people) to shape its own future.

Today, only 6 percent of young people in sub-Saharan Africa are enrolled in higher education institutions compared to the global average of 26 percent. However, by bringing a lightweight and modern technical training to those without previous opportunity, we believe in the potential to spark a revolution across the continent.

Our aim is to develop local talent to train and lead the next generation of developers to lead this revolution.

Technical and vocational education and training have not been a top priority for many African countries. In 2012, technical and vocational programs accounted for only 6 percent of total secondary enrolment in the region, a slight drop from 7 percent in 1999.

A New Approach To Investing In Africa

The purpose of Africa Code Academy is to create indigenous technology opportunities throughout the African continent—with a surefire belief that one engineer can create an entire industry and change the world while they’re at it.

We pair full-stack and blockchain engineering curriculum along with job placement and accelerator program that will quickly turn our students into teachers and entrepreneurs.

As students become mentors and mentors become entrepreneurs (and hire new grads), with the purpose is to become entirely self-sufficient.

 

  • Track your investment through distributed ledgers.
  • Help develop entrepreneurial opportunities alongside training program.
  • Create sustainable and self-sufficient economic development.
