Social Impact Projects
The digital economy is rapidly transforming the employment landscape across industries. It is, therefore, of utmost importance to prepare young people worldwide for the future of work in the digital economy.
As a social business, AmaliTech aspires to create a positive social impact by offering a variety of free training programmes and implementing additional social projects to equip youth in Sub-Sahara Africa with digital skills to help improve their employability in today’s digital economy and to create career opportunities for them. As AmaliTech’s corporate social responsibility (CSR), we have been focusing on social projects that specifically encourage disadvantaged groups to join the tech space.

AmaliTech strives to close the skills and gender gaps in ICT by actively fostering young African women and by creating digital career opportunities for them. This begins with awareness campaigns to encourage young women and girls in Ghana and Rwanda to explore and venture into information technology, software engineering and related areas of expertise, and continues with holding women-only bootcamps and continuous mentoring during training and on-the-job.
In light of advancing digital literacy, AmaliTech is convinced that equipping kids at early ages with digital skills and setting them on the right path toward technological exploration is vital for their future careers.

Programming involves critical thinking and creativity that help solve real-life problems. Hermann Gmeiner School, Asiakwa, is privileged to be on board the Coding for Kids (C4K) programme rolled out in our schools, in partnership with AmaliTech. Through this programme, students enthusiastically explore the field of programming as they build simple game applications. The joy and sense of happiness the kids get as a result of being able to create such simple computer games is beyond imagination. Such enthusiasm is what the kids need in becoming world- class programmers.
