In support of President Cyril Ramaphosa, in ensuring that the principles of social distancing and the lockdown are adhered to in order to avert the negative public health effects of the COVID 19 pandemic. MsZora an artificial-intelligence based educational platform which is a product of Africa Teen Geeks is offering remote classes to enable learning and teaching even in the National Lockdown alert.
Africa Teen Geeks created the first African block based coding platform, MsZora-Block and created tutorials for both learners and teachers with an objective of ensuring that every African school can teach coding from foundation phase in their mother tongue.
Africa Teen Geeks exists to eliminate the barriers faced by disadvantaged communities in pursuing science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
About my Life Mission
My life’s mission is to close the opportunity gap with regards to access to computing education. The majority of South African children do not have the opportunity to learn computer science. My goal is to expose them to computer science, helping to inspire Africa’s future generation of technology entrepreneurs and innovators.
I Am Driven By
As an orphan my grandfather raised my siblings and I from his pension; he always told me that education was my ticket out of poverty. He always said; “if you persevere at school, one day you will not even remember that you are an orphan”. I am driven by my goal to make him proud and show the world that an orphan raised by a pensioner and a garderner could rise and study at some of the best universities in the world. I am a proud UCT, Stanford and Columbia University student.

Thank you for the opportunity to learn to code. Without Africa Teen Geeks I would never have had an opportunity to learn how to code. I now believe that with technology, I can change the world.
My daughter had been struggling at school. Africa Teen Geeks introduced her to computer science and she has been doing great. She was selected to attend Festival of Code which boosted her self-confidence and her outlook on life.
I really like computer science. Next year, I will be going to high school so I hope to see you guys there. My favourite scratch project was the platform game. Thank you for coming to our school.
