SUPPORT OUR COMMITTED PROJECTS IN THE YEAR
1. CODE CLUBS IN ELEMENTARY SHOOLS
The Ghana Code Club prepares projects to be taught by teachers or volunteers after school sessions or during extra curriculum activities in schools. Ghana Code Club team also moves from school to school training teachers and starting code clubs. The children are taught using Scratch, HTML +CSS tools to make games, animations, interactive stories and websites in a creative fun way. Children pick up coding concepts gradually as they move along with our step by step project guides.
How will you be of help?
2. PHOENIX KIDS PROJECT
In summer 2016, iSpace Foundation partnered Ghana Code Club with funding from the Comic Relief to inspire school children to create with technology. The project name ‘Phoenix kids project” falls under the unlocking Women and technology program. More than 100 children benefited from this initiative in 2016. We designed 3 curriculums for this using Scratch, HTML +CSS and arduino cc. Kids made video games, animations, stories websites and paper circuits. The plan is to expand the phoenix project to other communities reaching 400 students every year through phoenix project. The “Phoenix kids’ project” will track progress on children by organizing yearly “hackathons” where the best kid(s) get rewarded. Will you be kind to sponsor? Contact us for more details
Project details can be found on the UWAT website
3. AFRICA CODE WEEK
The month of October every year is the celebration of Code Week in Africa, where a number of days is set aside to introduce African kids into the world of code. Ghana Code Club as an ambassador for Africa Code Week always seizes this opportunity to get into as many schools as possible to inspire kids to get excited to create with technology. We follow up by starting Code Clubs in these schools. Support Ghana Code Club for this years Africa Code week events
4. I READ AND I CODE
Ghana Code Club in collaboration with a few centers has initiated weekend programs to empower kids to creative computing. All throughout the year, on Saturdays, kids visit our center(s) to participate in our club activities. They read a book of their choice and then bring out their characters to live through coding. This is creative and fun engaging children to enjoy reading as well as creating with technology. We have also introduced Paper Circuitry where kids make LEDS light up using circuits with aluminum foil or copper tape and batteries and further programming those with micro-controllers- DONATE LAPTOPS and other RESOURCES to this effect. Please feel free to contact us
5. STEM ADVOCACY
Ghana Code club uses its social networks to advocate for STEM activities by posting resources from many blogs and websites worldwide. We advocate for using free resources from websites such as Google CS, Code Academy, and Scratch etc. Support us to spread computer science knowledge!

Coding develops analytical thinking, improves decision-making and problem solving nnskills. Learning to code at a young age will help you understand and solve problems in almost nnany disciplines in life.
When kids learn to code, they are coding to learn. When kids learn to code, they are learning important computational and mathematical concepts such as iteration, variables, and nnconditionals.
Teaching kids how to code is a smart career planning, it helps them to be prepared for the demands of jobs in computerized world in this 21st century.
