AmaliTech, an Information Technology training and services company as partnered with Access Bank (Ghana) to relaunch “Coding for Kids” (C4K) initiative to shape future of tech-savvy young minds in the country.

This initiative, first launched in 2021, is designed to provide coding training, foster creativity, and prepare kids aged 9 – 14 years for the future of work, with a particular focus on underserved communities in Ghana.

Partnership for Digital Empowerment

The partnership with Access Bank is a testament to the commitment of both organisations to promote digital empowerment and drive positive change in Ghana.

Access Bank has committed to providing funding to establish extracurricular coding clubs in up to ten public schools in the Takoradi region, providing coding education free of charge for 750 kids, and ensuring that they are well-prepared for the demands of the digital age. Educators, in the person of ICT teachers, undergo hands-on training sessions from AmaliTech and receive instruction in programming languages such as Python, HTML/CSS, and Scratch through both virtual and in-person methods.

Equipping children as digital leaders of tomorrow

AmaliTech’s partnership with Access Bank is not just strategic but passionately purposeful, as it is hinged on driving positive change in the field of technology education in Ghana with a special focus on children – who are the digital leaders of tomorrow.

The C4K initiative and broader CSR initiatives exemplify the organisation’s dedication to creating a brighter future for young minds and underserved communities in Ghana and potentially beyond.
