The Codenonia Codecamp Series started out as an initiative to
tackle the root problem of the technology gap between urban and rural regions in Nigeria, by
reaching out to young ones and youths in rural regions across Nigeria, and
enabling them to
learn to code.
Read about some of the problems we've encountered along our journey.
76+ workshops via 5 major programs till date
900+ young learners trained
35 facilitators and trainers

Codenonia guys came to my school in Ekiti state and changed my
about the future.
I never used to think about computer as a tool to solve problems, and make the future how we truly want it to be. But now I have a plan and I will work towards it. I spoke about it in my recorded interview on Youtube. It is indeed a privilege for me to be among the ones that Codenonia have impacted, and I hope that they keep coming.
What amazed me about CCS in my University was the fact that it
I saw the poster on a wall, and immediately applied.
I became a developer learning through the 4-month series, and here’s my first ever app - built using Flutter. Currently, I work as a remote intern for The Soft Company NG, where I develop websites for clients and get good pay (as a 3rd year student). I also love teaching others programming, which is why I am presently giving back as a volunteer facilitator in Codenonia Codecamp Series and Andela Learning Community.
I now write Laravel, React JS, Flutter, and a few more.See my projects on Github.
You should see this.
I am a graduate of Banking and Finance but Codenonia Codecamp Series presented to me a
platform to not just learn to code, not just to volunteer to teach others the same, but
also share my work progress with the world.
The experience altogether helped brace up my skills, and heavily served as a building block for my career as a programmer.
Diving deeper, I realized that there’s just no telling how much of the world’s problems fabulous solutions could be provided to, with programming.
I am now a full stack developer at Aiiburtel Limited
Africa Code Week, sponsored by Google, is SAP's
initiative to instill digital literacy and coding skills in the young generation.
We align with this singular goal and continuously help to drive the sustainable learning impact in Nigeria.
Read one of our Africa Code Week stories here.
We organize summer coding camps for young chaps between the ages of 6 - 9 and 10 - 15 respectively, where we teach Minecraft gaming and Scratch stories to the former, and to the latter, we teach Scratch game design, Roblox gaming, and Python.
We run once-a-week interactive coding workshops for tech
enthusiasts in secondary schools.
We have gotten lots of great feedback from workshops like this. See some of the success stories below.
One of our major goals is keeping our learners motivated and engaged. And apart from encouraging them to share their learning journey in the community feed, our Follow-up competition has proved a great way to keep them truly motivated and engaged.
