The Power Learn Project (PLP) launched the #1Milliondevs4Africa program to make tech skills accessible and affordable to young Africans.
The PLP is Africa’s leading impact organization in software development and digital skills training with a target to empower 1 million young people by 2027 through capacity building and job creation.
The existing PLP curriculum includes training in key areas of technology.
- Dart With Flutter
- Database Management
- Mental Health
- Personal Development
However, the existing PLP curriculum does not yet include game development. Level Up Africa aims to help.
Through the proposal below, Level Up Africa offers the addition of Game Development Training to the PLP curriculum.
Game Development is an engaging topic to attract, retain, and graduate young learners. Moreover, the industry itself demonstrates explosive growth.
