Learning Coding in Ghana
It's difficult to learn coding without access to a computer. We take it for granted in the west, but the affordability of a modern laptop makes it difficult in many places of the world. We recently had an opportunity to support REACT, a charity that was founded in the UK but supports young people in Ghana to access education.
Most of the young people REACT supports have much more basic needs. Often they can't get to school because of physical disability, so REACT provide help in the form of wheelchairs and other aids and funding to support ramps being built in schools. One of the first children REACT helped, however, is now at University and studying Computer Science Engineering. Joseph Akwetey is being supported by both REACT and another charity, but didn't have access to a modern laptop for his studies, so we've donated one of our most recent ones to him. We look forward to hearing how he gets on with his studies.
