ICT Summer Camp organized by Young at Heart Ghana promotes digital literacy in Asiafo-Amanfrom Community School

Young at Heart Ghana is a volunteer group comprised of young graduates from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), University of Ghana, University of Cape-Coast, All Nations University and the Koforidua Polytechnic. Its main purpose is to provide training and share their digital skills with children from remote regions.

From 29 May to 5 June this group will host the third edition of its ICT Summer Camp to empower the next generation of digital innovators in the Asiafo-Amanfrom Community School. The community was chosen first of all because of its location, and second, because it hosts a recently inaugurated ICT center and library. The program will involve around 20 volunteers and will be focused both in training teachers and children from the community in digital skills.

Although Young at Heart Ghana is a relatively new organization, it has empowered over 2,500 children in different remote regions during the last two years with basic ICT literacy skills. In order to do this, the organization runs Digital Innovators Clubs (DiggieClubs) in schools and organizes Digital Fairs in partnership with organizations such as Ghana Robotics Academy Foundation, Origma Tech and Tigo Ghana.
