Code 247 Foundation at a Glance
Code 247 Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting coding skills, blockchain (DLT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and Robotics among African youth, with a specific focus on Nigeria. The foundation comprises certified tech experts from different parts of African countries who are passionate about helping young people acquire the necessary coding ideas and skills needed to thrive in today's fast-paced technological landscape. One of the main goals of the Code 247 Foundation is to empower young people to become active participants in the growing digital economy. By training and providing them with resources on blockchain and Artificial Intelligence (AI), the foundation aims to equip young Africans with the skills needed to create innovative solutions to pressing challenges faced by their communities. With these skills, young people will be able to play a key role in driving economic growth and development across Africa.
Since our inception in 2020, we have taken significant strides towards achieving our mission of raising over 1 Million Smart Contract Developers by 2030. Our efforts have resulted in onboarding over 2000 youths into the blockchain space, providing them with technical skills and knowledge, and most recently, we awarded 200 youths a fully-funded scholarship to Althash University for a comprehensive 2-month certification program in blockchain technology.
In addition to providing training and resources, the Code 247 Foundation is also committed to promoting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SDGs which are set of 17 global goals aimed at ending poverty, protecting the planet, and ensuring peace and prosperity for all. The foundation is strongly committed to promoting SDG 4 (Quality Education), SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), and SDG 9 (Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure), to create a more sustainable future for young people in Africa.
To serve as an excellent tech platform for African youths to unleash their creative ingenuity and reach their full potential, with the goal of raising over 1 Million Smart Contract Developers by 2030.
To create an economic opportunity for Nigerian and African youth through blockchain technology.
To prepare Nigerian and African youths for a brighter and secure future in blockchain technology and to help advance science in Nigeria and Africa by facilitating excellent coding camp summits, conducting awareness programs, and promoting innovative and creative ideas. The ultimate goal is to empower young people to become active participants in the growing digital economy.
To achieve its objectives, the Code 247 Foundation employs a multi-pronged approach that includes:
The foundation offers mentorship programs for young coders, connecting them with experienced tech experts who can provide guidance and support as they develop their skills. These mentorship programs help young coders to build networks and establish connections that can be valuable throughout their careers.
The foundation conducts coding workshops for young people in Nigeria and other African countries. These workshops provide hands-on training in coding and blockchain technology, giving young people the opportunity to apply their newfound skills in a practical setting.
The foundation is committed to engaging with communities across Africa to build awareness of the importance of coding and blockchain technology. Through events and outreach programs, the foundation aims to inspire young people to pursue careers in these fields and to encourage parents and educators to support their development.
