Mwanza Code Camp

Mwanza Code Camp is part of  The Graduate Skills Enhancement Program (GSEP),  one of the initiatives of LCA that seeks to target graduates of tertiary institutions.

Mwanza Code Camp provides an opportunity for young people in Mwanza and its environs to learn coding skills. Currently, we run two (2) tracks – Software and Web Development.

The main aim is to provide graduating students with new technological skills that would make them more competitive in their search for employment or provide new career tracts though starting their own ventures.

With the high level of unemployment rate in Tanzania, this program will ensure that all participants of the program are equipped with skills that fit the 21st century employment market or they start up their own businesses.

There are countless opportunities in the tech environment in Tanzania but a majority if not all of such opportunities are found in Dar es Salaam where majority of the tech hubs are based. We seek to diversify this market by ensuring that all young people in other regions outside Dar es Salaam are also given the opportunity to participate in such a fast growing market.

  • To teach graduates coding skills in two tracks – software or web development.
  • Provide mentorship and coaching to graduates of our program.
