Simultaneously launched in 17 African countries including Togo, Africa Week Code is a powerful digital literacy tool, which met from 1st to 10th October over 88,000 young people across the continent. In Lomé, it is at the Cacaveli Bluezone that school children and high school students came to discover the program “Scratch”, a new programming language that facilitates the creation of interactive stories, cartoons, games and musical compositions.

Blueline Togo, already very heavily involved in reducing the digital divide in the country, has formed a number of its employees so that they can support young people in their learning. A trainer demonstrates the popularity of this activity, “more than 150 children a day come at the Bluezone of Cacaveli. They learn incredibly fast and have fun coding. This is a game for them!”.
