We believe that ability is evenly distributed. Exposure and opportunity are not. With technology being at the forefront of innovation, we hope to bridge this gap.
KidsWhoKode partners with affordable private schools. We leverage their facilities, identify 15 facilitators from India's leading engineering colleges, and train 20 students (10 students who are between 4-6th standard and 10 students who are between 7-9th standard). In one month kids who have never used a computer before are exploring loops, nested loops, conditionals, and events. By the end of the program, our students are able to build their own online game.
The rapid pace at which technological innovation is changing our world makes it imperative for children to not just consume technology but to also create it. Young children have flexible minds that are naturally curious and open to learning new things. In this context, coding is a perfect beginning because it is similar to learning a new language; always easier when a child is young. Coding unleashes creativity and confidence in children because it provides them with the tools to build their own solutions in a fun and engaging way. Along the journey, children also develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills. These benefits get translated to other school subjects as well.
KidsWhoKode partners with affordable private schools where computers/laptops and internet facilities are minimal. In every school that we partner with, we require 10 computers and internet access. Our 3-month intervention in any school, combined with your donation, helps ~100 students per school, per year, learn to code.
