Sponsor of African WordCamp Conferences for Students and Teachers
WordCamp Conferences across Africa are providing a new vision
and opportunities for careers, jobs, startups, and collaborations.
The opportunities for collaboration, cooperation, unification and
development of technology businesses has never been more
opportunistic and achievable.
African youth, teens, and young adults can be business owners
and move into entrepreneurship as never before because of the
access to and using of technology. The world is changing and
Africans are realizing that change is inevitable and can be profitable.
Profitable not just with money, but with opportunities, profitable with
potential and profitable with innovation and entrepreneurism.
African youth and teens are beginning to see themselves as digital
leaders and have access to careers they thought only available to
adults. They are developing skills across the digital spectrum that will
help with future visions of success and financial stability. The possibilities
for careers and jobs are endless when they’re applied what is learned
after attending workshops, conferences, trainings and building startups
for the future.
WordCamp conferences can have an influence creating a foundation
for learning and engagement with web development, graphic design,
understanding new AI elements, VR environments and how the Metaverse
is opening digital employment doors for global engagements. There are
no less than 5 African technology conferences coming to the cities of
Masaka (Uganda), Nairobi (Kenya), (Uganda), Jinja (Uganda),
Kampala (Uganda) and Entebbe (Uganda).
The growing opportunities to build skill-sets in youth and teens especially
girls to build a foundation for their futures in diverse areas of technology
and incorporating STEAM+M. What better ways to empower the future,
invite youth and teens from 10 to16 to WordCamps and have their own
workshops specifically for youth. WordCamp across Africa are doing just
that. Having workshops just for youth and teens to train them in tech
to be business owners, entrepreneurs, startups and thought leaders.
Using STEAM+M Science Technology Engineering Arts Math Metaverse,
as a foundation for learning and expanding the learning to Web Development.
Teachers like William are expanding a new way to branch-out in discovery,
creativity, and innovation with hands-on learning that blends AI, VR, Content
Creation, Blogging, Metaverse and, Podcasting.
Providing events that help girls to be celebrated, elevated, and cultivated as
leaders, creatives, innovators and importantly technology entrepreneurs.
Africa is a growing hub of technology and innovation, it is a dynamic
community for innovative and transformative changes in STEAM+M.
The growth in global collaborations across the continent are showing
that next evolution is with technological integration and application.
The push is on to integrate hands-on learning that focuses on learning
that is relevant and world importance so African youth and teens see
the value of learning and attending WC conferences.
To teach youth, and teens the necessary skills to be employable,
promotable, entrepreneurial, obtain leadership positions and to be
authentically creative and innovative. African youth and teens are
showing their value is even with and competitive with American and
European youth and teens. African youth and teens have been
through the struggles and challenges of life. Americans are in many
ways spoiled, and saturated with useless knowledge they are ever
more falling behind learning technical skills that will help them.
Africa children understand the desire to obtain a strong education to
improve not just their personal life, and the life of their families and
communities. Africans are not spoiled in the lies of having more stuff
is more important than having access to educational and employment
The influences of the blending of learning, experiences, creativity,
innovation and tech programs that build African businesses.
Science/ Technology/ Engineering/ Arts/ Math/ Music/ Metaverse/AI/
VR/Immersive Environments are providing new learning opportunities
for children of Africa and the African Diaspora. I sponsor students and
teachers to attend African WordCamp conferences in Nigeria, Uganda,
Kenya, Egypt, South Africa, and other venues. Providing sponsorships,
but also to provide Spatial Metaverse Galleries to support the speakers
and organizers and address the issues of accessibility for the those that
cannot travel to conferences because of physical, mental, financial,
emotional and other issues that challenge accessibility and mobility.
African parents must continue to prepare their children now to be educated,
employable, sustainable, and scalable to flow with the changing directions
with technology, creativity, and innovation.
The future is with the diversity of technology and innovation, it is not in
the future, but the present. Prepare African children to be employable,
scalable leaders and influencers.
