WHO WE ARE
GhanaHighSchools.com was established and programmed by the Dodoo Coding Club (DCC), a non-profit organisation based in Pokuase, Northwest of Accra, Ghana. We teach local children and teenagers computer coding.
Our goal is to develop a substantial academy of capable computer programmers in Pokuase who can assist companies with IT/coding services. It is accessible for free for the most talented children; access is purely based on merit.
“We are programming our own future!”
- Since our foundation in 2019, we have educated more than 40 children and teenagers in computer science and programming
- Today, our coders can independently create websites, graphics, computer games and much more
- More than half of our coders are female
- Over 85% of our recent JHS graduates have secured a spot in a Category A or Category B senior high school of their choice.
Robert has been the Program Coordinator of DCC since its inception in 2019.
Kirlin joined the Dodoo Coding Club in 2022 as Data Science Instructor.
