182 days ago

Candice is another one of our #947HumanGems.

Candice extremely passionate about empowering the youth, so she started a project called the Melisizwe project. The project is aimed at providing underprivileged schools with fully-equipped computer labs, with the aim of preparing our youth for the 4th industrial revolution and to promote equal opportunities for all children.

She dreams of opening her own technology school. To date with the help of sponsors she has given about 30 schools fully equipped computer labs. These schools are located in Gauteng, Western Cape and the Eastern Cape.

Melisizwe School Computer Project provides computer infrastructure to underprivileged schools so they can access Computer Application Technology(CAT) and IT as curriculum subjects. In addition, we use this infrastructure to train learners in coding, robotics and media studies to empower them to take up opportunities in the 4th Industrial Revolution. To partner with us contact us at Melisizwe.

With the fourth industrial revolution upon us, the Melisizwe Project is committed to equipping underprivlage communities with essential skills that will enable them to access opportunities presented by the digital transformation. #melisizwetechtuesdays #melisizwecomputerproject #digitaleducation . . . #computereducation #education #computing #technology #technologyeducation #digitaltransformation #computerprogramming #digitalrevolution #coding #programming #robotics #robots #southafrica #empowerment
