to me inclusion means, a diverse pool of youth are respected and valued, allowing them to reach full potential while contributing towards countries development #DOTYouth ☺️😍 taken from @Memwa Yaumah... @Mind Foundation we think this is true... And as we focus on provide ICT to children, we think it is important to encourage girls at a younger age in ICT and help them through their career goals

Is it important for children to learn how to write? Very few children grow up to be journalists, novelists, or professional writers. So why should everyone learn to write?

Of course, such questions seem silly. People use writing in all parts of their lives: to send birthday messages, to jot down shopping lists, to record personal feelings in diaries. The act of writing also engages people in new ways of thinking. As people write, they learn to organise, refine, and reflect on their ideas. Clearly, there are powerful reasons for everyone to learn to write.

Coding (computer programming ) is an extension of writing( I think so). The ability to code allows you to write new types of things- interactive stories, games, animation, vfx, and simulations. And as with traditional writing, they are powerful reasons for everyone to learn to code... There are broader and much deeper reasons for learning to code.... try to explore. ...

Ever heard about Operating System (OS)... Here is a little about them and how they work... Mac OSX is known to be sleek, aesthetically pleasing, and resistant to viruses. Made popular by artists, Mac OSX runs only on Apple hardware and has a familiar design
Linux a free (usually) flavor of “Unix” used by more advanced computer users. It’s highly customizable, secure, can be used on basically any type of hardware to perform any type of function.
Chrome OS is a simple operating system found on Google Chromebooks. It’s geared toward people who are more interested in using the web (and web applications) than anything else

Although becoming a full time developer can take a bit of dedication, learning how to write code can be easy. As more of our life touches computers, learning to write code to control them can enhance any career, no matter how nontechnical it may seem. From a teacher creating a website to help students learn their vocabulary to a parent creating a home inventory system to help generate grocery lists. Nearly every professional or hobby can be enhanced through learning to program.

In our minds... We know it is not a question of Value alone but Impact(in numbers)... and... How well the knowledge shared is being used in our communities by the kids... knowing this makes Us do more research on how lives among kids can be improved. .. and how many kids in a particular community...
