DIVE INTO CODEが達成しようとしている教育のエコシステムとして、日本とアフリカの学生が教え学び合うサイクルについてお話ししました。日本人メンターから教わって卒業したルワンダ人メンターが今、日本人向けに教えている例を話すと、学生さん達は笑顔とともに興味を見せてくれました。


We explained the ecosystem of education we try to realize, in which Japanese students and African students teach each other and learn together. We told the students that the Rwandan graduate who was taught by Japanese mentors is now teaching Japanese students, and the African students showed us their interest with smile.

The success story of Robert seems to encourage African students.

Among the students who came to our booth, many are interested in the internship at our company and some of them are interested in expanding our school into their home country.

We have joined many networking events for ABE Initiative students, and we find that many of the students who come to our booth are interested in "education".


Some people think that education contributed a lot to the economical growth of Japan, and some African students trying to develop their home country may be interested in the education business provided by Japanese people.

We explained our business for others, and one of the participants from Japanese companies told us that she was interested in learning to code, so we explained our crowdfunding project. We provide the supporters with various returns, and one of them is a big discount of our curriculum.

As we talked with students from different countries, it got even clearer that IT education is needed in many African countries. We keep trying our best to spread IT education and employment opportunity in Rwanda and Africa.






Our African business blogs tell you about our everyday events, but if you are interested in the whole project of our business in Africa, crowdfunding page explains it best.

I am sorry it is only in Japanese, but I would appreciate it if you could check the above crowdfunding page, find the share buttons of Facebook and Twitter, and share it on SNS. Your support will help IT education and employment opportunities reach Africa. Thank you!
