Rwanda in Focus: Experience in the Field

Season 6: Episode 15

Lady Mariéme, the founder and CEO of iamtheCODE, made an inspiring appearance at this year’s E-learning Africa Conference in Kigali, Rwanda. She showcased our new platform to leaders and local heroes from all over Rwanda who are transforming the world one day at a time.

She visited the Rwanda Coding Academy and demonstrated the platform to the pride of Africa, the girls and boys learning how to code. She was honoured to have witnessed their vigour in becoming the most significant asset for our continent. With the facilitation of our partners, Kilimajaro Blind Trust, Lady Mariéme also visited some young visually impaired students, which brought tears to her eyes. We are doing all we can to make the entire content in Braille so that those who need it most will have access. The students and teachers of HVP Gatagara School for the visually impaired also listened to one of our Decoding SDGs episodes. They expressed their love and understood the challenges of gender equality in the 4th Industrial Revolution. As she said, technology does not discriminate; people do. Please check it out if you have not seen the iamtheCODE Digital platform. In this episode, Lady Mariéme shares more knowledge about the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, which provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. Stay tuned as we have more guests lined up for this season.
