Majo Joseph, Marilia Domingo, Blessing Pit – Hour of Code

Date grant awarded: March 19, 2019

Majo Joseph comes from a marginalized community whereby access to ICT education and technology is very limited. He has thus chosen to address this as we are living in technology era. Hour of Code aims to offer free coding classes, business mentorship and leadership to 30 children in public schools in Manica district, Mozambique. Coding classes will not only equip these youth with basic ICT skills but transform them into programmers capable of using computers technology to solve community problems and start income generating projects. It will empower them so that they can lead fulfilling lives where they have access to academic, professional and business opportunities behind the computer screen.

The grant will allow Joseph and his team to run coding workshops where we will teach children to code using Scratch.
