Technology continues to play a pivotal role in the development sector. We believe that by providing Lincoln Ambassadors the opportunity to develop coding skills, they can then deploy those newly gained skills in developing software, technologies and programs that can contribute to development efforts across the continent. Technology projects have gone a long way towards solving teething problems in the education sector, health sector environment sector etc. We encourage young people who are keen on developing this skill to plug into this community and register their interest.
Young people around the world, between the ages of 7 – 18 from the Americas and Europe to Africa and Asia have taken on the challenge of using tech for development. The Coding 4 Development Program is designed to help young change makers level up on their coding skills while learning about global challenges facing their local communities. The projects they will be expected to start will go a long way towards ushering them into a community of developers with a passion for social change.
