Expression of Interest: Training of Trainers for coding camp training of young girl coders in select AU Member States under the project African Girls Can Code Initiative (AGCCI)

Submission deadline: 04 March 2022

UN Women in partnership with AUC and in close collaboration with ITU, ECA, UNESCO and UNICEF will be launching the 2nd phase of the initiative in March 2022 in Tanzania. The launch will be preceded by a 3-day Training of Trainers (ToT) which aims to create a pool of trainers who will provide training in a two-week-long national coding camp to young girl coders on an array of coding courses in the selected priority countries in 2022 and 2023. The TOT will also ensure that training modules and teaching systems are standardized. 

Thus, UN Women proposes to select 60 trainees from 10 countries namely Mali, Niger, Mozambique, Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, South Africa, Senegal and DRC (6 trainees per one country) in a competitive process to attend the TOT. The training will enable trainees to acquire skills and knowledge in coding and ICT and be able to support national coding camps in their countries.
