SeedDev is a non- Profit Educational Technology organization dedicated to helping kids, teenagers and young adults in emerging communities in Africa to develop digital and technological skills. We understand the role technology is currently playing and will play in the future across all industries and sectors in the world and how these changes and evolution will affect futures job roles and skill requirement. We also understand that the current existing educational system does not allow for students to develop these skills during their formative years, making it almost impossible for them to develop the required digital skills and for millions of young Nigerians growing up in rural and sub-urban settlements, access to computers, interfacing with technology and developing digital skills is almost impossible.
At SeedDev our many programs consisting of Tech Boot camps, Sensitization Outreaches, school coding clubs, digital literacy empowerment initiative and after school learning programs are all designed to achieve our major aim and objectives, which is to ensure that all African kids, teenagers and young adults are equipped with the right digital and technological skills that rightly positions them for great exploits.
Through our STEM education and digital literacy education projects, we have reached out to and trained over 7650 young Africans. We have also collaborated with OEMS, government agencies, private and public institutions and organization to achieve our set goals and objectives, advocating for digital empowerment for young Africans in emerging communities.
Amongst our projects is the BEMORE Girls summer boot camp in partnership with the BEMORE Foundation which annually trains young girls to develop digital and technological skills. The curriculum covers from computer appreciation to elementary computer programming and eventually to our students developing specialized computing skills such as web development and software engineering. 100 girls were trained in the 2017 edition of the project, the number rose to 450 girls in 2018 with an extension to Eastern Nigeria. The number of beneficiaries is expected to increase in 2019 and subsequent years to come.
