Building societies requires building capabilities. And what’s better than ripple effect capacity building to ensure having helped as much as possible?
At Makhzoumi foundation, we applied our ripple effect system with “Beirut Codes” workshop. Through Beirut Codes we introduced coding to young university students and equipped them with one of the most demanding 21st century skills: Micro Bit; These young trainees will become trainers themselves, where they will train 24 kids on coding, afterwards kids will be divided into teams to create coding projects.
The project started with an onsite training for university aged youth that focused on technical and programmatic aspects. Students were introduced on how to code and teach coding for school students.
A “Training Of Trainers” TOT was provided in order to facilitate the youth journey in delivering the training. Outreach of several schools is in progress aiming to training students enrolled in schools of age 10-14 will take place in the first quarter of 2022.
School youth will test their creativity and innovation through projects that relates to environment and their community. Students will pitch their ideas for a chance of winning several awards.
