THE 4TH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION IS HERE

Target Group:

7 to 16 year old children in the Philippi Horticultural Area (PHA)


Objective:

  • Give Children in PHA access to digital skills: The Children in the PHA, have very little to any access to the digital media, computers or the internet. As such many of them, will be left behind as the world moves towards digitization.
  • Train children in PHA with skills relevant for the tech industry: The technology industry is not accessible to all students through the school curricula. Moreover, many of them do not have access it at home.
  • We seek to empower students from low income communities through computer programming courses. This will range from basic entry level, to advanced programming.

Outcome:

  • Producing young adults who have the necessary skills to survive and thrive in the 4th industrial revolution and beyond.

You cannot wait until a house burns down to buy fire insurance on it. We cannot wait until there are massive dislocations in our society to prepare for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
